Funds For Land Conservation

By The Spokesman-Review

Area residents contributed $5,282 in December to a private fund dedicated by buying and preserving 170 acres on Tower Mountain.

Last summer, the Dishman Hills Natural Area Society signed a contract to purchase the land in an area known as the Rocks of Sharon. The conservation group, which instigated the preservation of the Dishman Hills Natural Area in the 1960s, put down $50,000 and agreed to make quarterly payments of $6,467 for 10 years in order to complete the new purchase.

“I’m confident people will support the cause with continued personal donations,” said Tom Rogers, group spokesman. Tax-deductible contributions can be sent to DHNAA, P.O. Box 14141, Spokane 99214-0141.
