Get your hands dirty on a working vacation

Pack trips and float trips are among the 'working vacations' offered through Wallowa Resources in Enterprise. Chieftain file photo

Wallowa Resources, a nonprofit organization based in Enterprise, is attempting to market a novel excursion experience to the public. Called "Nature Heritage Exploration." The for-pay vacations include time in the wild to not only enjoy nature, but to roll up one's sleeves and help in what is promised to be a rewarding working project.

Whether recording the location of raptor nests in the Zumwalt Prairie, pulling noxious weeds on a float trip down the Grande Ronde River or making improvements on the Standley Guard Cabin in the Eagle Cap Wilderness, program participants will be afforded an opportunity to "get your hands dirty and your feet wet."
