  Marie Dorian Park Ecology Mural 
   Project Year: 2002


Project Description   

An educational mural portraying a typical cross-section of the Walla Walla River has been painted on a wall at the Marie Dorian City Park.  This site has historical significance for Milton-Freewater and is also the site of a former dam that was removed in 1998.  The mural includes depiction of the riparian zone and associated land and aquatic life (plants, animals, fish, insects, and people).  A key with information in Spanish and English will be located nearby to help visitors understand the diversity of life and habitat supported by the river.
