Support connections to the outdoors for Central Oregon's youth
The Children’s Forest of Central Oregon is a network of partners that introduces and engages the children and families in Central Oregon to the wonder, science, and adventure of nature.
Plan a School Field Trip
The Children's Forest of Central Oregon has the goal of providing all Central Oregon students the opportunity to learn and explore outdoors through meaningful education programs. Learn about all of the field trip opportunities available through our partners and access resources for teachers to make field trip planning easier.
Family Time Outside
Spending time outside has so many benefits and children need 60 minutes of activity to grow up to a healthy weight. The Children's Forest offers outdoor family programs including Tiny Explorers and Discover Nature Days that get your little ones exploring the natural world, plus tips and ideas to promote family time outside.
