From the east end of the parking lot, follow the blocked roadway south, quickly coming to a junction. You’ll be heading right on the wide trail into the 100-acre Amon Basin Nature Preserve. Much of the land to the southeast of here may soon end up sprouting more than four hundred houses, seriously compromising the ecological integrity of the existing preserve and forever diminishing the prospects of what the Tapteal Greenway Association (TGA) envisions as a Central Natural Park for the Tri-Cities. The TGA has been working with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Trust for Public Lands, and other agencies and citizens trying to secure $2 million to purchase the 119-acre parcel slated for development.
