Space is limited and advanced registration is required.
March 13 – 15: Coastal Engineering by Bike
Discover the power of water and the energy in a wave on a fast paced bike adventure to the OSU wave lab. Visit local sites where beavers use engineering to create habitat. Participate in a sandcastle building activity at the beach, see if your structure can withstand the incoming tide! Build bridges and dams to learn how to engineer human habitat. $50/day or $125 for all 3 days (*additional $25 field trip fee for Day 2).
- Day 1: OSU wave lab and beaver dam investigation (meet at SAGE bike to wave lab)
- Day 2: Sandcastle and village building with the tides (meet at SAGE bus trip to coast)
- Day 3: Building bridges/dams (meet at SAGE w/ bridge bike adventure end at Avery House)
March 25 – 27: Spring Salmon Study
Run with the salmon on a journey from mountain streams to giant ocean seas. Dissect a hatchery salmon to see egg masses and internal anatomy. Test local rivers for key salmon needs from water quality to stream sediment and debris. Visit Clemens Park and the Alsea Fish Hatchery. Create a large-scale salmon art installation. Daily details coming soon!
