Whether you visit or live in Wallowa County or connect with us through the Internet, you and your family can support, learn about, and participate in taking care of the land and water. Sustaining the land  – including its soil, water, plants and animals – is essential for vibrant rural communities. We educate all generations about our natural resources and stewardship through outdoor learning, research, and exploration. Join us today and strengthen your connection to the land!
