Wallowology is the education and outreach division of the Eastern Oregon Legacy Lands Fund, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit. We offer talks and family-friendly activities and hikes (Discovery walks), as well as longer expeditions and opportunites to tour ranches and farms. Our workshops connect you with wild landscapes. Whether here or elsewhere, we invite you to explore, discover, and conserve eastern Oregon’s wild places.
