Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) says
Don't let kids have all the fun this summer! Join us on a trip to Sauvie Island as we put the "field" back in "field trip." OMSI is partnering with Oregon AgLink to give you an in-depth, behind the scenes look at Oregon agriculture on this adult field trip. We'll hop on a bus and explore JD Ranch, where all the potatoes for Tim's Cascade are grown. Learn how the potatoes are processed, how farmers make pesticide management decisions, climb on some big farm equipment, and more. Then we'll head to Columbia Farms for a packed lunch before learning about drone use in agriculture, irrigation practices, how much Oregon Agriculture is exported, and have a final hour to "u-pick" berries in their fields.

Please note:
- Transportation is provided. We will depart OMSI at 8:30am, and return to OMSI at 4pm
- Ticket cost includes transportation and lunch
