She Who Watches - Honoring Walk & Discovery: A Partner Event with Friends of the Columbia Gorge

  • Columbia Hills Historical State Park 85 Highway 14 Dallesport, WA (map)

With old friends and new ones from Friends of the Columbia Gorge, join NatureConnect NW's Founder Judy Todd for a contemplative walk on culturally-treasured Yakama Nation lands.

The ancient feel of this special place will guide our senses. We will spend intentional time with She Who Watches, or 'Tsagaglalal', as she is also known, and learn some of the stories that have come to us from her long history and the respect she has earned through time.

Our visit will include the geological, river, and human history in evidence around us, as well as the petroglyphs and pictographs at Columbia Hills State Park. We will deepen our understanding of the depth and breadth of the cultural importance of diverse people and events, and explore historical perspectives and current challenges of this sacred landscape on tribal lands.

Meet up in the adjoining park and walk to the the Petroglyph Trail and the trail to She Who Watches. Bring your lunch, snacks, water bottle, and sturdy walking shoes. No pets or photography, please. This is one for the senses and the imagination.

RSVP Required. Limited Group Size. Discovery Pass Required; Day Pass can be purchased at the site. Membership at Friends of the Columbia Gorge required to register. Contact Friends and Judy Todd, 503-260-4995
