Event Details

The Willamette Heritage Center’s 7th Annual Heritage Invitational Exhibit, Nature & Community, examines the interactions between people and the environment in the Mid-Willamette Valley. Water, soil, forests, wildlife, and minerals have shaped the economies, settlement patterns, leisure activities, and identities of the communities in the region. Humans in the valley have also been shaping the natural landscape to meet their needs and ideals since time immemorial. Native agriculture and burning practices sculpted the valley’s iconic oak savanna, power development and flood controls in our cities have dammed and shaped our waterways, and the current trend in urbanization is transforming agricultural regions into cityscapes.

Nature & Community will be on display beginning Friday, January 20th, and closing on Saturday, April 15th. The exhibit will be open during regular museum hours, Monday through Friday from 10am to 5pm, and is included in the cost of admission. A special members-only reception will be held on Thursday, January 19th from 6pm to 7:30 pm. Become a member today to take advantage of this great benefit!
