Education Programs

Oxbow’s Education team helps young learners make connections between nature, food, and farming while developing comfort and confidence in the outdoors. In addition to hosting school field trips and other hands-on experiences, Oxbow partners with educators and schools to enrich student learning; from in-class experiences to virtual platforms during distance learning, we meet schools where they’re at!

Oxbow also provides access to age-appropriate, nature-based activities and experiences for the whole family! Use the links below to explore our adaptable program offerings.
