Children overlook Wallowa Lake from an East Moraine glacial erratic

The 1,791-acre East Moraine property was acquired in January 2020 for public ownership under Wallowa County. The Wallowa Lakes Moraines Partnership made up of Wallowa Land Trust, Wallowa County, Wallowa Resources, and Oregon Parks and Recreation Department worked for over a decade to complete this community conservation project. 

Now that it is under Wallowa County ownership, all development and subdivision rights have been extinguished and the property will be managed as a working community forest, protecting native plants, wildlife habitat, and cultural resources while providing non-motorized recreational access and returns to the local economy through sustainable forestry and grazing.
