Learnscape

Welcome to Nearby Nature’s Learnscape! This wonderful space is a model for sustainable living practices as well as an outdoor classroom.

Our user-friendly composting and water-catchment systems model energy and water conservation. Our gardens produce food as well as awaken the senses. Nature-themed artwork mirrors the wonders of nature nearby. And outdoor classrooms (Hazelnut Hollow, Squirrel Kitchen, Pollinators Playground, and the Edible Schoolyard) and natural play areas for kids (Nature’s Builders Playspace and the Nest) make learning outside fun.

Our Learnscape inspires curiosity, imagination, and stewardship.

Thanks so much to all the community partners worked with over the years to develop the site, including the Oregon Community Foundation, Walama Restoration, the Seed Ambassadors, the School Garden Project, the City of Eugene, EWEB, the North American Butterfly Association, the Native Plant Society, the Master Gardeners, and more.

Let us know if you want to get involved. Work parties are listed on our Calendar and we’re always happy to talk to people would like to volunteer to contribute artwork or work on building projects in the space. We look forward to having you on site soon!
