Family Farm

Valleys of the Pacific Northwest contain some of the nation’s richest farmland. At the Trillium Creek Family Farm, visitors can get up close to goats and chickens.

The Trillium Creek Family Farm also offers teenagers a hands-on experience in farm operations and animal care. They assist with daily farm operations, care for the animals, and help visitors learn and discover.

There are two groups of teenagers who participate in programs at the Family Farm: School to Work teens and ZooTeens.

The ZooTeen program is a summer volunteer program where teens work throughout the zoo, interpreting for visitors and caring for animals including those at the Family Farm. Learn more about the ZooTeen program.

The School to Work program is a school-year partnership with local high schools providing an opportunity for students to earn credit by learning hands-on animal care and science at the Family Farm. (Sorry, our school year program is not open to teens from non-partner schools.) Learn more about the School to Work program.
