Our Education Programs

The Arboretum incorporates diverse habitats from bottomland riparian forest to oak savanna, woodlands, and prairies. With nearly all of the southern Willamette Valley ecology represented on the site, the Arboretum is a fantastic outdoor classroom for all ages and levels of interest.

Mount Pisgah Arboretum provides field trips for about 3,000 K-5 students every year, and hosts about 1,000 people on guided nature walks and natural history workshops. We also work with local institutions to provide internships and to support graduate and undergraduate research.
