Jim Huckabay - The Hidden World of the Yakima River Canyon: A “Lifeline” for All

March 7 at 5:30 p.m.

The Yakima River Canyon is a lifeline, linking the snow-capped Cascades to the Pacific Ocean.  This tremendous energy source for animals and plants also benefits humans, who use river water to irrigate homes and businesses, and enjoy the Canyon’s many recreational opportunities.  According to Jim Huckabay—writer, outdoor enthusiast, and emeritus Professor of Geography at CWU—the Yakima River Canyon is “the heart of our outdoor heritage.”

Learn more about the hidden world of the Yakima River Canyon on March 7, at 5:30 p.m. at the Museum of Culture & Environment, where Huckabay will present “The Yakima River Canyon; A Lifeline for All.” This short presentation will be followed by a discussion about the canyon and its importance our lives.
