The Wallowology Natural History Discovery Center is open for the 2021-2022 Winter season. Come in out of the cold to learn about the incredible region we call home!

We are still asking visitors to the center AND in Discovery Walks to be prepared to wear masks.


Schedule: Available everyday through October 9 a.m.–11 a.m.


Join Judy Swank or Charla Lower for these family-friendly hikes! All walks will depart from the lobby of Wallowa Lake Lodge.

Email judys@wallowology.org 24 hours in advance to book your hike.

Wallowology invites regional scientists to share their knowledge. Once or twice a month, we fill our evening exhibit hall with chairs, cookies, slides, and dozens of guests. From slide shows to natural history, visitors can expect knowledgeable speakers on pertinent local topics in a wide range of sciences. Due to social distancing regulations, we are suspending our presentations until further notice.

If an event won’t fit in an evening talk, or is more structured than a walk, it's a special event. It might be a longer hike, a party, a workshop, a school visit or maybe an off-site tour. We’ve teamed up with groups of all types: schools, land trusts, astronomy clubs, farms, hiking clubs, research groups. We advertise the events, and often help lead them.
