The product of a grassroots public fundraising campaign by the Friends of Badger Mountain organization, the Preserve was established in 2005, the year of the County’s centennial. Goals for saving Badger Mountain were to preserve views, protect upland shrub-steppe habitat, and provide for non-motorized uses such as hiking, biking, and horse riding. In the years since, the Preserve has been expanded to over one square mile in size and features eight miles of trails. With over 200,000 patron visits each year, it is one of the most visited parks in the Tri-Cities area.
