Cowiche Canyon Conservancy holds a variety of events and activities to increase opportunities for kids and adults to learn about the unique natural environment of the shrub-steppe and connect people to these lands. We work with a variety of partners including other non-profit organizations, schools, and local, state, and federal agencies to engage the community with our work and build support for our conservation work.
From the rugged Garry Oak tree to the fragile threads of a spider’s web, nature is full of stories that reveal our intimate connection to the natural world.
The art exhibit will be on display January – March 2020 at Essencia Artisan Bakery.

Chloe Waham | Betsy Bloomfield | Sharon Cox | David Hagen | Linda Ritch | Cecilia Marie Hudon | Ivan Baumbach | Michelle Baumbach | Marlene Simla | Joan Eckman | Nancy Lust | Sheryl Pickering | Mikaela Lemus | Mary Lemus | Asiah Schaffer | Mary Lou Rozdilsky
