Nibble your way through the Edible Schoolyard as we sing garden songs, learn about the six plant parts and create some beautiful rainbow art! Enjoy outdoor nature play in our Learnscape plus toddler and pre-school activities and stories. Rain or shine! Kids 5 and under only, with an adult. Members FREE, non-members $5. Pre-register online or call 541-687-9699.
Join us for citizen science investigations, including data collection, observations, photography, and more. This month we will focus on aquatic invertebrates! Events open to all but designed especially for adult participants. Meet on the Waterwise Garden patio outside the Nearby Nature Park Host Residence in Alton Baker Park — see directions. (Note that there is a concert in Autzen Stadium later in the day. If you enter the park by car and you encounter parking attendants, let them know you are attending a Nearby Nature event at the Park Host Residence, not the concert.)

Join us in the Learnscape to get your hands in the soil and prepare the gardens for another vibrant season. We’ll weed, compost, and plant while enjoying bird song and all the signs of spring’s returning.
We’ll meet in the middle of the Learnscape between the two sheds adjacent to the yurt. Look for the green Nearby Nature signs pointing the way. We will provide gloves, tools, and small snacks. We ask that you bring a water bottle, and dress for the weather in closed-toe shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Please also RSVP beforehand to Shaun Daniel at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you’re coming.
