BioBonanza at OMSI
Come join us for the first-ever BioBonanza at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry on Saturday, September 21st from 10am-1pm. We'll be joining the Audubon Society, Xerces Society and a handful of other organizations to put on a fun, hands-on celebration of the natural world!
We've just wrapped up our free Summer 2019 programming and are proud to report that we were able to reach roughly 800 kids and parents (some on a repeat basis) in Portland's parks over a six-week period. We logged an amazing 460 volunteer hours in June and July alone. Thank you to our supporters and partners, Portland Parks and Recreation, Portland Parks Foundation, Metro and EMSWCD. We look forward to reaching more kids on more days and at more parks in Summer 2020.
*Please check back soon for an updated calendar of Fall 2019/Winter 2020 events and Wild Bus happenings!
