CORONAVIRUS AND WALLOWOLOGY
After long months of waiting to resume our activities due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we are happy to announce that the Discovery Center is opening!
Our priority is protecting the safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff. We know the value of educational opportunities about our ecosystems. We have put into place safety procedures to help protect all those involved while providing outdoor and indoor learning for locals and visitors.
We are now asking visitors to the center AND in Discovery Walks to be prepared to wear masks.
We offer family-friendly activities and short hikes we call Discovery Walks, as well as longer day-hikes and opportunities to tour ranches and local nature sites. We want to connect you with the wild landscapes of the Wallowa Country!
Since 2014, we've created many exhibits about the natural and cultural history of the Wallowa Country.
Discover why Northeast Oregon is so unique: canyons, grasslands, plants, animals, rivers, forests, lakes, moraines, and the geology of it all!

Explore & Discover!
Because Coronavirus safety protocols limit our usual activities, Wallowology is augmenting those programs with activity bags, printable maps and other web resources so you and your kids can play and learn about our environment.
