2017 Plankhouse 2nd Sunday Events

The Plankhouse will be open from 12:00 PM-4:00 PM on each of the following days. House tours, kids activities, and naturalist guided walks are included with every event. These events are free with refuge admission. Stop by any time between 12 and 4!

Come experience a day featuring ancestral skills and indigenous knowledge!  Learn how to start a fire from scratch as well as many other activities!

This year we have the very special opportunity to host a suite of native artists from the Chinook Indian Nation and the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde in the Plankhouse.

Please join Greg Robinson, Greg Archuleta, and Deven Robinson inside the Plankhouse for conversations and demonstrations on everything from carving and pigments to first foods.

We hope to see you there!
