You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make.   – Jane Goodall

The impact of supporting EOLL

The Mission of Eastern Oregon Legacy Lands (EOLL) is to expand public awareness of greater Eastern Oregon’s natural and cultural history, and accelerate the pace of land conservation throughout the Blue Mountains ecoregion. Scientific research and public education serve as the foundation for all Legacy Lands programs and associated activities. We embrace the key role of scientific research and education in helping rural communities better understand and manage the landscapes they call home.

Wallowology is the public education division of EOLL. Wallowology provides a unique and growing scientific education and outreach facility in a rural setting that attracts over 700,000 visitors per year to learn through exhibits, partake in science programs and guided hikes, and enjoy evening presentations at the Natural History Discovery Center. Wallowology provides a forum to engage, inform, inspire and involve residents and visitors alike in the conservation of ecosystems and landscapes that support and sustain rural communities throughout Eastern Oregon.

All contributions are committed 100% to fulfilling the EOLL Mission. Because EOLL is 501(c)(3) tax exempt, your contribution is deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Contribute online using this page's convenient Donate button, or send your check to Eastern Oregon Legacy Lands, PO Box 666, Joseph, OR 97846.
