Outings & Events

What’s going on!

There are many ways to experience Shrub-Steppe.

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. 


During the isolating times of COVID-19, we will be participating in and promoting virtual community events — talks, conversations, and more — until we can safely gather again for live events. Thank for your patience as we adjust our schedule and our event focus during this time.


When: August 26, 6 pm

Where: Online Zoom Meeting  https://heritage.zoom.us/j/92362042902

Due to current public health concerns, we are not holding community walks. We will make plans for future walks when it is safe to do so. Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time.
