CONSERVATION – A former dairy ranch is the newest addition to the Dishman Hills Conservation area.

The sale of the 179-acre parcel was finalized last week, according to a Spokane County new release. The Dishman Hills Conservancy nominated the Flying L Ranch land to to the Spokane County Conservation Futures Program in 2016. Trailhead access will be in the Ponderosa Neighborhood.

Late this year the county parks department will start a public planning process involving the Ponderosa Neighborhood. The proposed sale price for the land was $700,000.
