August 3rd: Bridgeport State Park
Join park staff and volunteers as we dive into the life of the Columbia River Basin salmon. A staple for many centuries, the salmon has had profound effects on the richness of life in the entire Pacific Northwest.
Join us for a Wild Skills Adventure at Crystal Mountain Resort on Friday, August 9th! SheJumps’ Wild Skills Adventures are open community events where parents/chaperones participate with the girls. Throughout the adventure, girls are introduced to a range of outdoor skills which include first aid, navigation, leave no trace, 10 essentials, shelter building and more.
We strive to engage all generations in the sharing of knowledge and understanding. Connecting experience, energy and love for our natural places with the technical and survival skills girls need to get out and adventure.
August 17th: Alta Lake State Park
Join park staff and volunteers for a showing of nature’s smallest animals. From tiny sharks and shrews to a hummingbird that travels thousands of miles each year, we will learn all about some of the tiniest survivors in the animal kingdom. It is a great big world out there, but for these animals, size does not matter!
August 21st: Walla Walla Park
Outings will be on the 3rd Wednesday of the month and led by Wenatchee Naturalist, Susan Ballinger. She will record bird sightings and enter them into the community science eBird database.
We will meet at the north parking lot at Walla Walla Park, next to the restrooms, and spend about 30 minutes in the park, and then walk the 2-mile round trip loop within Horan Natural Area. The walks begin at 7:30 a.m.and end about 10:00. It is possible for people to join in at the start and depart early if they need to be at work.
