Big Rock Acquired for Conservation

Date: 7/24/2009

Late last month the Spokane area conservation group Dishman Hills Natural Area Association (DHNAA) acquired the iconic Big Rock property located at the south end of the Dishman Hills. The deal involved an even swap of another 80-acres of DHNAA land on the north side of the ridge. Big Rock will be protected for the public as part of a larger, 750-acre natural area. The Spokane Mountaineers are working in collaboration with DHNAA to start road and parking area improvements necessary for climbers and the public to gain access to this area, which features granite rocks rising from the ridgeline.
