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!
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 about two hours.
