Check out all the different types of events we have to offer! We aim to offer opportunities for people of all ages, of varying experiences and backgrounds, and with the goal that you will walk away with more appreciation of the Tualatin River and the natural resources within the watershed.

We try to keep all our events at a fair cost or free to the public. If price is an issue please contact us and we can work to find a resolution. We want everyone to be able to participate in our activities and discover what the Tualatin River watershed has to offer.
