Field Trips

Preschool to high school

The best way to learn about nature is in nature. We use several different field trip sites in and around Yamhill County and are happy to meet you at a location of your choosing. During OEA field trips students engage in a series of activities taught by OEA naturalist-educators and trained volunteer educators. Lessons are curated to highlight the natural environment in which we are learning and to enhance students’ awareness, curiosity, and critical thinking. Field trips range in length from two-five hours.

Learn more below about Outdoor School and Salmon Watch field trips for students between 5th-12th grades.

Contact Us to schedule your Field Trip Experience or for more information on program options and pricing.
