Cowiche Canyon Conservancy creates a variety of opportunities for all ages to connect with the shrub-steppe. We work with partners including other non-profit organizations, schools, and local, state, and federal agencies to engage the community with our work and build support for local conservation.
The exhibit is a collaboration between Boxx Gallery and Cowiche Canyon Conservancy, juried by PUNCH Projects. All selected works will be featured in the exhibit at Boxx Gallery, September 1 – October 8, 2023.
Entry fee is $30 and artists may submit up to 3 pieces of artwork for consideration.
From its 10-year history as a gallery in Seattle, WA, to its current initiative as a rural arts collective, PUNCH has worked to promote visual dialogue between urban and rural art communities. In their ongoing effort to promote artwork that is thoughtful, fresh and contemporary coupled with their desire to further bridge urban rural connections, PUNCH Projects seeks to support the cultural vibrancy of rural art scenes by spurring creative awareness, cross-cultural engagement and economic vitality.

Morning Light on Rabbitbrush

Join the Yakima Valley Audubon Society’s Stan Isley for a tour of early summer birdlife at Snow Mountain Ranch. In the heat of summer, early mornings are the best time to hear and see some of the rich birdlife of our valley. Because Snow Mountain Ranch offers so many unique habitats — from riparian to meadow to upland shrub-steppe — it’s a great place to observe everything from later migrating neotropical birds to woodpeckers to many birds of prey.
You need to register in advance for this walk.
Note the unique early start time (7:30 am) and day (Sunday) of this walk.
