Friday WREN Wallowa Resources Exploration of Nature


During the school year, we offer up to 16 classes for 5th-8th graders on Fridays. 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.

The program

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

In past, we have offered classes in wildlife biology, forestry, early homestead history, geocaching, and more. Contact us to learn more.
