Spokane River Bank Acquisition

Category Overview

Urban Wildlife Habitat projects fund close-to-home places to play and explore nature. As our urban areas are increasingly expanding and densifying, these grants protect important fish and wildlife habitat within five miles of densely populated areas, creating green refuges that help keep our ecosystems healthy and provide places to enjoy nature right in our backyards.

Project Highlights

City of Spokane acquired 36 acres containing one mile of shoreline along the north side of the Spokane River, from downtown Spokane to High Bridge Park, to preserve riverine wildlife habitat.
