OHA organizes, facilitates and hosts educational, volunteer and recreational events. Volunteers, partner organizations and community members make a positive impact on the Okanogan Highlands environment by their involvement at these events. Currently, our events are being impacted by COVID-19, and in the interest of protecting public health we are working to diversify the way that we interact. We are excited about the events coming up and proud of the opportunities to learn and make a difference through the past, we hope you will choose to join OHA in learning about and protecting the health of our local environment!
