More Saltese, Please! 9/25/21

The Conservancy, with your help, will purchase 55 acres marked in blue on this map. This land, already utilized by users in the Conservation Area, will be open to public enjoyment after the purchase. The Conservancy will also work with Volunteer Land Stewards and other volunteers to improve the habitat for birds and native plants and develop a sustainable trail system.

Since 2018, Saltese Uplands Conservation Area has seen 119% increase in average daily users, thanks in part to rapid development in Spokane Valley and Liberty Lake. Spokane County Environmental Services is working to restore wetlands to the Saltese Flats, including a recreational trail open to the public.

We need $500,000 to acquire and improve this land for wildlife and human use. Join us by supporting this purchase today!
