Feryn Ranch Conservatory offers a haven for waterfowl.
Update: I recently visited Feryn Ranch again. I added a couple late summer pictures for perspective.
The Feryn Ranch Conservation Area northeast of Spokane offers a glimpse of what the prairie was like before the area was settled by homesteaders in the 1800’s.
Nestled between plowed fields and encroaching housing developments, Feryn Ranch C.A. is a 164 acre preserve that offers a home to over 60 species of birds. It also serves as a safe stopover on migratory routes for over 100 species. Anyone interested in birdwatching, or just a pleasant hike with a panoramic backdrop, should take a morning or afternoon to explore this wetland sanctuary. Dogs are permitted as long as they are kept on a leash. Avalon, my newfy mix, accompanied me recently on a morning jaunt through the area. It was raining on and off, which contributed to our solitary yet memorable experience.
