Oxbow’s Family Farm Adventure field trips connect families to the magic of Oxbow and bring science topics to life in a safe and meaningful way! Whether your child is learning remotely, in the classroom, or is part of a homeschool group, participants of all ages will engage their senses and expand their knowledge about food, farming, and nature at Oxbow.
Developed in response to COVID-19 and the desire to keep kids engaged in the outdoors at a safer, smaller scale, Family Farm Adventures offer households and families a personalized field trip experience. Oxbow’s magical, kid-friendly farm and garden spaces set the stage to inspire our future land stewards, scientists, and farmers.
Family Farm Adventures are adapted from Oxbow’s Next Generation Science Standard (NGSS)-supported Fall Farm Adventure and Spring Farm Adventures programs, some of our most popular and long-standing programs for young students.
