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

The Dishman Hills Conservancy will purchase 257 acres of land in Spokane County as part of a wildlife corridor and for recreational access.The primary habitat conserved is forest habitat.
