Ice Age Floods specialist Gary Kleinknecht will lead a tour June 25. He'll "take you 'upstream' via the Othello Channels, Drumheller Channels and Quincy Basin to experience the dramatic erosive powers of the floods," a news release said.

The tour, which runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., includes lunch at Dry Falls Interpretive Center. It then will work its way back via Lower Grand Coulee to Vantage, with the final leg crossing the mouth of the Lower Crab Creek and along Priest Rapids Floods, the news release said. Cost is $70 per person.

John Clement will lead a June 27 early sunrise photography class and tour on a Columbia River Journeys jet boat. The tour runs from 5 a.m. to noon and includes a hike to the top of White Bluffs. Cost is $195.
