Dishman Hills Natural Area
Dishman Hills Natural Area, adjacent to Camp Caro Community Park, is 530 acres of dramatically sculpted rocky hills and ponds with areas of grasses mixed pine and fir forest, aspen groves, views, and a profusion of wildflowers every spring. Dishman Hills has been protected as a natural area for over 30 years, serving as habitat for wildlife and as a passive recreational resource with miles of designated trails. Dishman Hills Natural Area is unique as it's been recognized by Washingotn State DNR as a Natural Resource Conservation Area for it's geologic history as well as some unique species.
Beginning in 1966, land was purchased and donated by the Dishman Hills Conservancy to protect the hills from urban sprawl and development. Spokane County Parks and Recreation Department, Washington State Department of Natural Resources and the nonprofit Dishman Hills Conservancy are partner stewards and have worked together to preserve this unique resource.
