Digging Deeper

Oxbow’s Education programs connect you to the magic of Oxbow and bring science topics to life in a safe and meaningful way! Whether your child is learning remotely, in the classroom, or is part of a homeschool group, participants of all ages will engage their senses and expand their knowledge about food, farming, and nature.

We’re proud to share that we’ve implemented a community-funded sliding scale program for our outdoor educational experiences. Together, we can cover the costs for participants with financial barriers so that all may take part. Learn more >>
