Tucked away in remote northeast Oregon lies the beautiful Zumwalt Prairie. This seemingly peaceful land of waving grasses is the last large, wild remnant of the native Palouse Prairie—a grassland that once covered much of northeastern Oregon and southeastern Washington. It is also a symbolic battleground in the conflict between ranchers and environmentalists over the use of our country’s rapidly vanishing natural habitats. Wildlife biologist and award-winning author Marcy Houle has carefully studied the 200 square miles of the Zumwalt Prairie.

Currently, we are looking for a volunteer to fill the following role, but please feel free to contact one of us if you'd like to help in another capacity.
