Kingdom Animalia: Field trip to the Oregon Zoo

Are you crazy for jungle cats? Wild for wildebeests? Mad for macaws? Then join Friendly House this Spring Break for a delightful day at the Oregon Zoo where we will bear witness to a menagerie of fantastic beasts and amazing artificial habitats!

Culinary Chemistry: Chemistry Lab with OMSI

Do you have an appetite for discovery? Then put on your lab goggles and join Friendly House and special guest instructors from OMSI as we enjoy a day of exploring the scientific properties of food!
