Conservation & Restoration
Description

Join us as we work on conservation and restoration projects around the property and throughout the Snoqualmie Valley. Conservation Volunteers will join our team during the week or will get updates about our weekend work parties to help out with our daily tasks such as weeding, planting, and conducting research. These tasks may require hiking, bushwhacking, digging, and generally getting dirty and sweaty in all weather conditions, so volunteers will should to come prepared. Those who love working hard in the outdoors and want to learn a bit more about how we care for our ecosystems will enjoy being an Oxbow Conservation Volunteer.

Description
Come help students of all ages learn about seeds, soil, compost, worms, seasonal changes, and other basics of organic farming! In an average year, Oxbow hosts thousands of kids on educational farm field trips. With Covid-19 restrictions, we are currently offering visits for individual households or "pods", to come explore the bounty of the Kids' Farm and surrounding forest on 2 hour hands-on tours facilitated by Oxbow educators and volunteer instructors. When no tours are scheduled, volunteers assist the education team in a variety of farming tasks around the Kids’ Farm. Only an interest in food and farms, and passion for providing engaging and educational experiences for participants is necessary, program-specific training is provided! Most programming is offered Mon-Fri, between 9am-4pm, potentially some weekend education opportunities throughout the season.
