Family Fun & Learning on the Farm
This fall we invite you to come out to Sauvie Island Center on Topaz Farm to spend time exploring and growing with your family and/or small group at our Family Field Trips!
Thanks to the support of Topaz Farm, we’ll host a free Family Field Trip Day for friends of Topaz Farm on Wednesday, October 6th from 10 am to noon. The sliding scale fee is waived for all, but space is limited and registration is required.

Family Field Trips
Our curriculum is designed for elementary school aged children, but all ages are welcome with appropriate supervision. Field trip leaders will lead small groups through an exploration of our typical spring field trip modules: Seed to Harvest, Plant Parts, and Soil & Compost. We’ll also spend time in our very own Grow Lunch Garden, learning about decomposers, a dynamic farm tour and more. Family field trips run from 10am-12pm at our site on Topaz Farm and will be held most Wednesdays ending November 10th.
