Confluence at Celilo Park

February News from Confluence

Latest Confluence Site Gets Underway

Of all the Confluence sites, Chief Timothy Park looks the most like the Native landscape Lewis and Clark observed 200 years ago. It's Confluence's fifth site and construction is finally is underway! Ten years in the making, Maya Lin's "Listening Circle" near Clarkston, Washington will be completed this spring. It's an amphitheater built into the landscape, inspired by a Nez Perce ceremony performed there in 2005.

Save the date: The dedication ceremony is scheduled for Friday, May 29 at 10 a.m. We would love to see you there. If you live near Clarkston, let us know if you'd like to volunteer to help make the dedication a community event.
