Warm Springs OSU Extension delivers educational outreach programming to the Community of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. Programs involve the use of hands on learning with focus on both adult and youth audiences. Program areas are Agriculture/Natural Resources, Family and Community Health, and 4-H. Examples of classes include; 5th grade cooking classes, Canning Classes, Culture Camp, Animal Health Clinics, and Range Workshops. Most of our programs are done in partnership with one or more tribal organizations such as the Early Childhood Education Center, Warm Springs Elementary School, and the Range and Agriculture Department.
The partnership between the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs and Oregon State University has existed for over 50 years. A formal Memorandum of Understanding between the University and the Tribes provides support for the Extension Program, which is housed in the Education Building at 1110 Wasco St. Warm Springs, OR.
