FIXING UP A LIGHTHOUSE
Heceta Head Lighthouse, north of Florence, is going through the most thorough upgrade in its 108-year history. It is the most photographed lighthouse on the Oregon coast. Learn about the details on Oregon Heritage Exchange at www.oregonheritage.wordpress.com .
OPEN HOUSE TO SHOWCASE CELILO STORIES WEBSITE PROJECT
An open house showcasing the Celilo Stories Website Project will take place from 1:30-4:30 p.m., June 12 at the Museum at Warm Springs, 2189 Highway 26, Warm Springs. The open house provides an opportunity for community members to learn more about the project, meet project staff, and share memories about Celilo Falls and the Columbia River.
Celilo Stories provides a multi-generational resource that explores the history and culture of Celilo, explores environmental issues, and invites visitors at Celilo Park to listen and contribute to the many stories of Celilo. Created through a collaboration of the Columbia River Tribes, the Celilo Stories website serves as a virtual space that tells the stories of Celilo Falls - those of the past, the present, and into the future - connecting people along the river today while preserving the past. Recollections include fishing and harvesting, working and playing, discussions of the village as a home that extended to the river, the significance of Celilo as a long-term home for the Wyam, Wishram, and Wasco people and the sacredness of the falls.
