Oct. 17, 2017 La Grande, Ore. −La Grande and surrounding communities will have a rare and special opportunity to take a vicarious journey with author Bonnie Olin into one of the most remote areas in the lower 48 states — The Owyhee Canyonlands — by way of a talk, slideshow and movie.
Olin will share her richly illustrated journey into the canyonlands of the Owyhee River in Nevada, Idaho and Oregon when she visits Eastern Oregon University on Friday, Oct. 20. This free talk hosted by EOU’s Outdoor Adventure Program begins at 6 p.m. in Zabel Auditorium, and is based on her book with photographer Mike H. Quigley.
Michael Hatch, Outdoor Adventure Program coordinator, said Olin’s visit provides an opportunity for EOU students to engage with the region’s natural features, as well as the community and culture.
“If we can better connect [students] to Eastern Oregon, its beauty, natural wonders, community, and culture, then they will have a more thorough understanding and relationship to our area and campus,” Hatch said.
The presentation will be followed by a Q & A and book signing session.
Contact Mike Hatch at 541-962-3393 or visit eou.edu/outdoor to learn more about the Outdoor Adventure Program.
