Education


The Okanogan Highlands Alliance board and staff understand how important education is in protecting, restoring and preserving the highlands environment. And so, in addition to direct restoration and rigorous verification of mine monitoring and mitigation, OHA offers resources and information to community members. 

 

OHA has launched a monthly series of presentations, workshops and discussion forums for local community members, featuring the natural history of the Okanogan Highlands. To provide input on the topics we offer, please fill out our community learning survey. If there is a topic you are interested in learning more about, you can enter it into the survey.

 

OHA can provide workshops on:

  • Wetland Communities
  • The Value and Function of Wetlands
  • Beavers: Nature’s Amazing Wetland Builders
  • Wetland Plant and Animal Adaptations

If there is another topic of interest to you, please let us know.

 

The Okanogan Highlands Alliance board and staff are delighted to celebrate OHA's 20th anniversary, and share appreciation for the natural environment, by commissioning Andy Eccleshall to paint mountains, forest, wetlands, flora and fauna of the area. The murals are being painted on the Community Cultural Center exterior walls in downtown Tonasket. Read more
