Family Friendly Siuslaw

Being outdoors can help your mind and body at the same time and has powerful benefits to children. We love helping families, schools, and community groups get their kids outside to explore the forest. Whether they’re hiking under big trees, poking around tidepools, learning about streams or meadows, or just being silly on a sand dune, kids gain a lot from time spent outside. The Siuslaw offers many ways for kids and families to experience nature and pique their curiosity about the world around them.
