Join Us For Fun, Adventure, & Play Each Friday

During the school year, we offer up to 16 classes for 5th-8th graders on Fridays (about 8 classes each fall and spring). WREN students learn about Wallowa County natural and cultural history through hands-on and self-discovery activities.

Classes teach skills in exploring, discussing, analyzing, and evaluating our environment. We also provide kids with guided hands-on field research and community service projects. Whenever possible, local nature resource professionals and landowners join us, exposing students to future career opportunities, local knowledge, and real-life research.

Our Goals

  • To increase understanding of local cultural and biological diversity and its systems
  • To expose youth to the local culture and biological diversity within Wallowa County and increase their appreciation of it
  • To increase their awareness of how humans and ecology are connected

We offer a wealth of classes. In the past, we have offered classes in wildlife biology, forestry, early homestead history, geocaching, and more. Contact us if interested in being a guest speaker.
