Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge

Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge

Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge is an urban refuge located close to a metropolitan area that uses comprehensive, integrated, hands-on educational methods. Field-trip activities are designed to mesh with teachers’ objectives, and trained volunteer naturalists lead many nature-themed field trips, including the Forest Ecology/ Habitats of the Refuge Field Trip. Naturalists teach students about riparian forests and oak savannahs, along with the associated interactions of wildlife in those ecosystems. The Forest Ecology/ Habitats Field Trip also explores seasonality and changes in the forest throughout the year, and the science of maintaining a healthy forest. This trip is aligned with the Oregon Forest Literacy Plan.
