Road Trip: Lower Columbia River to the Coast
A Confluence Road Trip allows you to dig deeper into the storied landscape of the Columbia River. Time at sites of cultural and environmental significance with Indigenous speakers is a chance to hear first-person insight into Native culture and history. You will come away with a richer understanding of tribal sovereignty and stewardship of our shared landscape. These Confluence Road Trips are designed for educators, including classroom teachers, but anyone who is curious is welcome.
