Our natural history events and activities for the 2022 season begin on May 27!


Special Earth Day Hike:

Rather enjoy the outdoors on foot? Join Wallowology naturalist, Judy Swank, for a hike up the East Moraine. Learn about local ecology while you enjoy a two-hour hike at a family-friendly pace.

Meet at the roadside trailhead on Friday April 22 between mile markers 4 & 5 on the Wallowa Lake Highway (used to be "green gate").

Special Wallowology Outings:

Every season, Wallowology invites guests to spend a day experiencing the wild, living ecosystems of our region with our Systems Ecologist, David Mildrexler. Be ready to pack a lunch and hit the trail to participate in one of these full day adventures that allow time for exploration and learning about regional science and current issues.

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.
