Beacon Trail
Beacon Trail

Beacon Bound

You and your students will feel on top of the world when you conquer the Earth's fourth-largest monolith, Beacon Rock. Study the landforms of the Columbia Gorge and learn how great floods of molten basalt and the massive Missoula Floods have shaped our land. This incredible field trip also allows time to visit other destinations in the Gorge, which may include Bonneville Dam, Eagle Creek, or Multnomah Falls. This trip will take your class to new heights, guaranteed.


Ape Cave, Mt. St. Helens

Under the careful guidance of an experienced Naturalist, students will journey below the surface of the Earth to spelunk one of the longest lava tubes in the world! They will study the fascinating geology of the caves and discover the nature of molten rock as they trek for over a mile beneath ground. This is truly one of the most unforgettable -and educational - experiences you can give your students, and yourself!


Columbia Gorge

*Field trips to the gorge are currently on hold due to trail closures from the Eagle Creek Fire. We anticipate reopening this option once more trails are available for use by the public. Our Beacon Rock field trip listed below covers similar content and is available.

People travel from around the world to experience the magnificence of the Columbia Gorge, yet we often take this backyard treasure for granted! Let our inspiring Naturalists open your students' eyes and train them to "read the land" so they can see the ancient story it reveals. The Columbia River is the most powerful river in the Northern Hemisphere, and we guarantee this field trip will be an educational experience just as mighty.
