Save Our Horse Heaven Hills

Help our grassroots effort to Save Our Horse Heaven Hills continue

to fight the poorly-sited wind project in the Horse Heaven Hills. The turbines and

flashing red lights will stretch from Finley to Benton City. Up to 244 turbines, each to a

height approximating that of the Space Needle will be visible to most in the Tri-Cities

area and up to 35 miles away.


Damage to our diminishing shrub-steppe ecosystem will be irreparable. This ecosystem

supports diverse wildlife species, including protected and endangered birds such as

the Ferruginous Hawk, as well as migrating species such as Sandhill Cranes that use

the Pacific Flyway migration route.

The project’s design bisects those migration routes and multiple rows of turbines will

multiply avian mortality. Birds of prey are particularly vulnerable. Fire risk from a turbine

malfunctions will increase the chance of habitat destruction, crop loss, and danger to the

public.


Residents can expect property values to decline. On similar projects, nearby residents

have experienced health issues from low-frequency sound. This is in addition to the

intrusion of an industrial facility overlooking residences. Recreational opportunities

would be lost and tourism and wineries would be negatively impacted. The Tri-Cities would

lose an iconic feature with a heavenly name. The most well-known landscape feature in

this area will never again be able to be seen or photographed in its natural state.


Please donate today to protect our fragile environment and the natural beauty of our

region.
