    The DHNAA in conjunction with Spokane County Conservation Futures Program have been working to secure access to the Big Rock / Rocks of Sharon area.

    As we continue to work with neighbors and stakeholders in this process we sincerely request that those wanting to visit this sensitive area do so by accessing it from the Holman road Iller Creek trailhead.


    This request is to help ensure a collaborative relationship with land owners and neighbors and help facilitate the development of a successful access trail from the south.

    Thank you,

    REI Service Day at Dishman Hills

    On Saturday April 9th REI sponsored the second annual service day for the Dishman Hills Natural Area. About 300 volunteers removed Knapweed, built fences, did trail work, ground preparation for a native garden, decommissioned trails and planted trees. Here are some highlights...

    Ness Elementary School has a Native Plant Garden plan for Dishman Hills but the ground needed preparation so volunteers pulled weeds, turned soil and moved rocks to create borders.

    Professor Roberts talks about removing Knapweed.

    Fences at the new parking lot were installed.

    Goldback Springs Bridge needed to be rebuilt.

    Fallen trees needed to be cut and removed.
    Special thanks to the Backcountry Horsemen.

    Lots of down logs and branches needed to be removed.

    The trail needed to go from the parking lot to Camp Caro.

    Trash was removed from the natural area.

    And everyone enjoyed the free pizza, music and prizes at the end!
