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 Field Trip. Naturalists teach students about riparian forests and associated interactions with wildlife. The Forest Ecology Field Trip 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. Educators can check out the Rhythms of the Refuge guide online for pre- and post-visit activities.
