SUMMER FUND DRIVE
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!
Help residents and visitors, children and families learn more about Eastern Oregon’s wild landscapes through Eastern Oregon Legacy Lands' Wallowology activities and research projects. Please donate to Wallowology today!
