WHAT WE DO
Prairie Mountain connects community with craftspeople who are working to preserve and share their trades and knowledge. Our goal is to inform and educate by offering classes and workshops to locals and travelers from our Wallowa County campus. By educating and empowering students in a non-competitive, intergenerational learning environment, we provide a vital platform for the survival of these skills for future generations.
