Oregon Garden Natural Resources Education Program field trips are designed with hands-on activities and rely on interactive exploration at the Oregon Garden. In an effort to reduce the threat of COVID-19 (the Coronavirus), we are cancelling all field trips until April 28, 2020 in accordance with the recent directive from Governor Brown. We are sad to cancel these field trips but in the meantime, check out our online publications for students and parents that can be downloaded at LearnForests.org.
The Oregon Garden Natural Resources Education Program provides students in fourth through sixth grades a hands-on approach to natural resources education by offering free field trips to the Rediscovery Forest, an OFRI-managed teaching forest at The Oregon Garden in Silverton. While visiting the forest, students participate in engaging educational activities to learn about topics such as forest ecology, food webs, forest health and wildlife habitat.
