Walla Walla regional economy bus tour

Would you like to learn more about the regional economy in Walla Walla? This year, we are pleased to offer an optional regional economy bus tour on May 8. The tour features a catered lunch at Pepper Bridge Winery, a guided tour of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation’s Chinook Hatchery, and a guided tour of College Cellars of Walla Walla. It is a great opportunity to connect with colleagues and learn more about the region during a beautiful time of the year!

The bus departs from the Marcus Whitman Hotel at 11:00am and returns at 5:30pm.

Secure your seat when registering for the conference. If you’ve already registered, or wish to buy a ticket for a friend, no problem! We have a “bus tour only” option open as well. The cost per person is $125. Participants must be 21 or older.
