Natureplay Preschool at Avery House
For over 18 years the Corvallis Environmental Center’s preschool program at the Avery House Nature Center has successfully facilitated a deep connection between students and their environment through engaging and playful nature activities outdoors! Located in the heart of Avery Park, we tell stories, sing, play movement games, create amazing art projects and learn about nature through inquiry and investigation of nature’s seasonal cycles.
Hours: By appointment. Please call or email to arrange a meeting.
Location: 1200 SW Avery Park Drive Corvallis, OR 97333
The Starker Arts Garden for Education (SAGE)
SAGE is a 1-acre production garden located in Bruce Starker Arts Park. It is also home to the Dunawi Creek Community Gardens.
The food grown at SAGE is donated to local food banks and soup kitchens–providing fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables to families in our community who cannot afford them. 2019 was the second year in a row we grew and donated over 10,000 lbs of fresh produce to those in need!
Community volunteers are at the heart of SAGE. Each year, more than 800 people come to help SAGE grow.
SAGE is also a place to learn. There are programs for children, garden-based workshops, and community events at the garden almost year-round.
Hours: By appointment!
