Romine Conservation Area
This 28.6-acre property serves as a vital link in the wildlife and recreation corridor between Riverside State Park (RSP) and the Palisades Park. Bordering RSP on its eastern border, Romine enjoys many similar natural attributes common to the western parts of Spokane County. The area overlooks portions of Riverside State Park as well as the Spokane River.
Wildlife, such as deer, elk, coyotes and the occasional moose, use this area to travel north to south through the protected parks. Wild turkeys can be seen frequently while pheasant and quail will use the property for breeding and nesting area. Additionally, raptors and peregrine falcons may use the area as hunting grounds.
