Come listen to Tribal Members of the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians as they share knowledge of their watersheds, culturally relevant plants, and integrating traditional knowledge of their Ancestors into cultural and scientific practices to reach cooperative goals for the future generations of all our people.

If you're coming from the coast, you may enjoy a scenic drive up the old Siuslaw Highway, winding along the Siuslaw River's path as it cuts through the Coast Range to the headwaters in Lorane.
