Drumheller Springs Conservation Area
The Drumheller Springs Conservation Area is located next to the 12-acre Drumheller Springs Historical Park in west central Spokane. The property, acting as a buffer between the park and a major arterial, maintains scenic views and natural habitat for wildlife found in the historical park.
The Drumheller Springs Historical Park preserves traditional Spokane Indian gathering and burial grounds. Chief Spokane Garry, the Spokanes ' first schoolteacher, is believed to have built a school potentially on the property. The Conservation Area extends the park to protect more history of the City of Spokane as well as preserve the visual sights from the park.
