Storm Closures

Saturday, October 15th, we will be closing early, so as not to endanger guests, staff, or volunteers. Whether you are cozying up to a toasty fire or helping a neighbor,  this day will be historic enough without us! Please do come visit when the storm is over.

In general, if the Estacada School District is closed or delayed, we will close the Farm for safety reasons. If ESD or your school district is closed for weather, we will reschedule or refund your tour. Check school closures here. Weekend events will be closed if weather conditions make driving hazardous in our region. Such closures will be posted here.

We have heard many tales of ancestors trapped in the mountains, rescued by Philip Foster from inclement weather, hunger, and poor planning. In honor of those brave pioneers, we recommend reading a good book by candlelight, or writing in your journal for posterity.

Some suggested reading for kids:

A Child’s Garden of Verses

Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder

My Side of the Mountain by Jean George
