Oxbow Farm & Conservation Center

Oxbow is a nonprofit organization dedicated to sustainable farming, conservation, ecological research, and environmental education for kids and the general public.

Oxbow Farm & Conservation Center

Oxbow Farm & Conservation Center is situated on 230 acres of forest and valley land along the beautiful Snoqualmie River. Oxbow grows organic produce, operates a Native Plants 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 for 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 7-11, with volunteer opportunities available for teens. Learn about this year’s offerings at

Oxbow hosts educational Farm Adventure field trips for student groups in the spring, summer, and fall. The tours are led by a farm educator and incorporate the use of all five senses, learning about nature’s cycles and where our food comes from, and interacting with the Kids’ Farm fields and wildlife. During the winter months, Oxbow’s farm educators can come to your classroom for an In-Class lesson! Learn more and register at
