Native Plant and Animal Tour
Offered from April through October. Join us on a hike around the forest of Aerie Farms, with over 2 miles of trails. Our land in the Cascade mountain foothills of Oregon’s Willamette Valley is full of native plants and animals. Giant old-growth trees around Pond Lake are habitat for many birds of prey, and native flowering shrubs offer nectar for hummingbirds.. You’ll get to see native birds that thrive on the berries and bugs of the undergrowth. Offered for individuals or groups of up to 6 people at a time. $20 per person.
Offered June, July, and August when the summer sun keeps our garden thriving. Interested in Pacific Northwest gardens? We are excited to share what we have learned in a lifetime of Oregon living. We tend to both edible and ornamental gardens and are lucky to have tons of trees scattered across our 70 acres. We use organic permaculture practices to produce all of our plants, and work hard to minimize waste and protect our natural splendor. You’ll get to learn about what kinds of plants work well in our climate, and how to plan gardens that produce food for both people and wildlife. Offered for individuals or groups of up to 6 people at a time. $20 per person.
