New for 2020! Developed in response to COVID-19 and the desire to keep kids engaged in the outdoors, Oxbow’s Family Farm Adventure field trips connect families to the magic of Oxbow in a safe and meaningful way!
Oxbow’s Family Farm Adventures bring science topics to life. Families will explore interdependent relationships, plant and animal needs, witness the cycling of nutrients, and learn how selection by farmers influences genetic traits of the food crops we love. As many schools continue 100% online learning this fall, support your child’s curriculum by coming to Oxbow for a hands-on science experience where they adapt the Next Generation Science Standard-supported Fall Farm Adventure Program at a smaller scale for family/household units!

Each farm tour is 2 hours; time slots are 9-11 am, noon-2 pm and 3-5 pm. Please check the calendar for the available time slots and to register.
*No one will be turned away; please reach out to us if program costs pose a barrier.
