1. What would you like to learn about?

OHA’s education series, Highland Wonders, is gearing up for the spring and summer 2012 outdoor program. Highland Wonders showcases the natural history of the Okanogan Highlands and surrounding areas. Come and meet new people or see familiar faces, and enjoy our outdoor snack potlucks; leave with a better understanding of your watershed. We hope to see you there!

As we develop the next schedule of events for Highland Wonders, it would be helpful to know which topics you are most interested in. Please take a couple of minutes to complete this short survey. Please try to utilize each ranking, and rank each item, to help us choose which topics to offer this summer. Thank you!
