Exploring Dishman Hills

July is officially picnic month. Which makes July the perfect time to get out and explore Dishman Hills.

What an amazing place Dishman Hills is! Tucked between Spokane and Spokane Valley, Dishman Hills sits on the edge of dense residential neighborhoods and provides outdoor activities such as hiking, trail running (or snow shoeing in the colder weather) and an opportunity to just be away from the hustle and bustle of life.

Protecting all of that is the Dishman Hills Conservancy - working to provide environmental education and to grow the preserved wilderness by adding land to connect Dishman Hills Natural Area with Glenrose Natural Area and Iller Creek Conservation Area. They are working in partnership with the Spokane County Parks, Recreation & Golf as well as the Department of Natural Resources. This small but mighty group currently employs a full-time executive director, but the volunteers are the heart of their work.
