Oxbow Education

Cultivating Connections Through Outdoor Exploration

Whether on the farm, at school, or at home, Oxbow’s Education team (OxEd) aims to create unique experiences for learners to directly engage with and relate to the natural world through sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell.

By cultivating deeper curiosity and connections with nature, we lay the foundations to be the change we want to see in the world—giving people the inspiration, tools, and confidence to nurture relationships with their community, the food they eat, and their local ecosystem.

What parents, educators, and kids are saying:

Oxbow acknowledges that we are on the Indigenous Land of Coast Salish peoples who have reserved treaty rights to this land, specifically the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe (sdukʷalbixʷ). We thank these caretakers of this land who have lived, and continue to live, here since time immemorial.
