The Spiva Butte Nature Preserve consists of some of the most pristine shrub-steppe habitat left in Washington. The 1,396-acre preserve provides critical habitat for one of the last two viable Sage grouse populations remaining in the state. With its three springs, four-acre lake and miles of riparian corridors, the healthy habitat of the Preserve is home to an amazing diversity of birds, wildlife and plants. The primary stewardship goal for the property is to protect and maintain high-quality wildlife habitat.

There is no public access to the preserve at this time, but the Land Trust will offer guided tours once a stewardship management plan is in place.
