Autumn in the ancient forest

Welcome to one of our favorite times of year–the summer crowds have tapered off, the vine maples are turning red and gold, and the autumn chill is right around the corner.

Back to school

Our outdoor school season starts up again after Labor Day! We just can’t wait to hear the tramp of little boots on that trail again. If you’re a teacher, PTA organizer, Scout leader, or home-school coordinator,¬†we still have openings this fall for overnight outdoor school programs!¬†Check out our program details here and then give us a call at 503-892-2782, Monday, Wednesday, or Friday!

But wait–there’s more. Now that summer vacation is over, our weekend workshops are back! These overnight adult programs are perfect for those who plan to stay curious all life long. Offerings range from the relaxing inspiration of yoga to getting your hands dirty at our Jawbone Flats stewardship weekend. Check out the calendar here.
