COVID-19 Response for field trips

Our organization is continuing work during COVID-19 in ways that ensure the safety and well being of our participants and staff. Some indoor learning opportunities may not be available due to COVID-19 and group numbers will be limited. Fortunately, outdoor education models typically can integrate better distancing procedures naturally not to mention strong and memorable learning opportunities.

We recognize that there is a lot of uncertainty and best practices and educational models will be ever-changing. We will be working with the most currently available safety protocols from the CDC, Oregon Health Authority, and school districts to protect students.


These are instructional videos based on the field trips that we conduct at the council. Check out our YouTube Channel!
