A New Community Center
Since the beginning of our organization we’ve had a vision for a permanent space that can be used as a meeting and exhibit venue for promoting our mission of sharing the Lower Grand Coulee experience through arts and science education, exhibits and presentations. This space would be publicly available to other organizations with similar needs and purposes such as the Art Guild of the Soap Lake Area, Ice Age Floods Institute, Soap Lake Heritage, Soap Lake Conservancy, and Columbia Trails Association.
