Haynes Estate Conservation Area
This conservation area contains 97 acres offering riparian and upland wildlife habitats with almost 1/2 mile of relatively undisturbed shorelines along the Little Spokane River. The site is timbered with native Ponderosa pine, Douglas fir an understory; throughout the property are topographic benches, steep slopes, granite outcrops, and informal trails.
The property is located in a rapidly growing area and several roads were rough graded in anticipation of residential development. The Friends of the Little Spokane River Valley is working with Spokane County Parks, Recreation and Golf Department to develop a master plan for rehabilitation of the property.
