Educational Programs Planned for 2019

December 18, 2018

As a busy year comes to a close, the Confluence staff is hard at work planning and scheduling meaningful programming in schools and public spaces. The mission of Confluence is to connect people to the history, living cultures and ecology of the Columbia River system through Indigenous voices.

Here are some highlights to look for this year:

- New series of Confluence Story Gatherings: In February, at Washington State University's Vancouver campus; in May, at the Vanport Mosaic in Portland; and in September, in Lewiston, Idaho.

- Confluence Road Trip to our three western sites, including a Chinook Nation Salmon Dinner, in July.

- Professional development workshops for teachers with support from the Gray Family Foundation and the Roundhouse Foundation.

- Earth Day Mulch Party at the Confluence Land Bridge on Saturday, April 20.

And much more. Check out the events below that are scheduled already. Join us again in 2019!
