Confluence Project at Celilo Park

February Updates From Confluence

February 10, 2016

Classroom Projects in Full Swing

Students from NE Portland to Maupin, Oregon and from Vancouver to Trout Lake, Lyle and Wishram, Washington have been hard at work on projects related to the Columbia River system.

Confluence in the Classroom brings native artists and tradition keepers into schools for hands-on educational experiences that bring together social studies, history, art and the environment. 

One teacher at Thomas Jefferson Middle School in Vancouver told us, "This project has been fantastic for helping the whole 7th grade social studies program develop a meaningful unit about Celilo Falls, fish and the Dalles Dam. Given that the project is meant to inspire thinking about how people interact with their environment, it's already done its job...and there's more to come!"

Thanks to our generous funders! Bill Healy Foundation, Firstenburg Foundation, PGE Foundation, Roundhouse Foundation and the US Bank Foundation.
