Help Us Protect the Bluff

  There are a lot of projects we're excited to tackle this year, but at the rate that Spokane is growing, none are more pressing than land preservation and maintaining public access.


Spokane is "on the map" now, whether we like it or not. Developers are pouring into the city with their eyes set on the natural, open spaces that make Spokane the beautiful city that it is.

Our Main Initiatives

LEAF Project

After years of discussions surrounding the 48-acre farm in Vinegar Flats, the owners are finally moving toward a sale with real estate developers. But they've given us a limited window to come up with a fundraising plan to preserve the land. A group of 10-20 dedicated conservationists and city representatives have been meeting weekly to discuss our options. To voice your support for the project and stay informed on our progress, please visit our LEAF Project page

57th & Hatch Trailhead (Tuscan Ridge)

Many people don't know, but this access point has been in jeopardy for several years due to the proposed "Tuscan Ridge Development." This property is a critical access point for countless bluff users.

Rocket Gulch Descent

The Rocket Gulch trail needs a lot of work. The steep trail is subject to erosion and difficult to transverse for just about anyone, regardless of their physical condition. Please exercise caution if entering the bluff from this location. We are working with the city and neighbors to determine and fund a permanent solution.

"And Much More"

We always have several irons in the fire, but we're forced to prioritize them due to limited resources and personnel.


What do you want us to pursue in 2021? We want to hear from you!
