Cool your toes in the clear and clean, wild and scenic Sandy River at Oxbow Regional Park. Spend time catching and releasing bugs in the water and looking for animal tracks in the sand with Metro naturalist Deb Scrivens. $5 per vehicle parking fee.
Family Nature Explorers brings kids and adults together for open-ended nature exploration in Metro natural areas. Families meet other families with the same interests in nature and the outdoors. Kids meet other kids who love to touch, smell and study all things natural. Led by Metro naturalists and volunteers, each adventure explores a special theme – but trip leaders seize the moment when nature presents any unexpected learning opportunity. Bring a sack lunch. Children 4 and older are welcome with a parent, grandparent or guardian. $11 per family per program. Register for each program separately; come to one or come to all. Register online or call 503-797-1650 option 2. Hosted by Metro
