Exploring Cultural Engagement & Community Wellness: Warm Springs, OR           

Trip Cost: $140  (includes 4 dinners & 2 lunches)

Discover various factors impacting community health and wellness in Warm Springs by exploring elements of food sourcing, community and cultural activities, and outdoor recreation.  Through direct service work, we will explore community gardens, nutrition classes, cultural events, and outdoor recreation/education that all impact the health and livability of the Warm Springs area.  During our trip activities will likely include working on building raised garden beds for senior living, working at a community celebration (includes pow-wow, rodeo, horse racing, and other games), working with youth, hiking at Smith Rock, visiting the Museum at Warm Springs, and visiting with faculty and staff at the Warm Springs Extension Office to learn about the services and programs put on by OSU Extension for the community.  We will be visiting with the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation and exploring and learning about the tribal customs of the native populations. Home to Warm Springs, Wasco, and Paiute tribes, the Warm Springs Reservation is inhabited by nearly 4,000 tribal members, most of whom live in or around the town of Warm Springs.
