Oxbow Farm & Conservation Center is situated on 230 acres of forest and valley land along the beautiful Snoqualmie River. Oxbow grows organic produce on 30 acres of the land, operates a Native Plant Nursery, restores natural habitats, facilitates research in agriculture and conservation, and provides inspired, outdoor educational programming for children throughout the year. With a mission to inspire people to eat healthy, sustainably grown food and to steward our natural resources for future generations, Oxbow is dedicated to building a healthier future for the land, and the people and wildlife that inhabit it.
Oxbow’s week-long Summer Camp sessions provide a safe and fun space for campers to express themselves in the outdoors, rain or shine! Camp sessions are full of exploration, art, games, songs, fresh farm foods, nature connection activities, and more. Using Oxbow’s one-of-a-kind Kids’ Farm and Living Playground as a living laboratory, campers are guided along a path of environmental literacy and land stewardship through hands-on, inquiry-based activities. Camps are available for kids ages 4-12, with volunteer opportunities available for teens. Learn about this year’s offerings at www.oxbow.org/summercamp/
Oxbow hosts educational Farm Adventures for preschool and elementary school students in the spring, summer, and fall. 75 or 90-minute tours are led by a farm educator and incorporate using all five senses, learning about nature’s cycles and where our food comes from, and interacting with the Kids’ Farm fields and wildlife. If you can’t make it out to the farm, Oxbow’s farm educators will also come to your classroom for an In-Class lesson! Register at www.oxbow.org/education/
