Reconnecting with Nature, Especially for Children

Chrysalis Farms, LLC is thirty-three acres of pristine forest, pastures, orchards and floodplain which provide the ideal campus to reconnect with nature. We hope all who visit will emerge as a bright new creation like a butterfly that develops from a cocoon. 

Members of The Children and Nature Network (www.childrenandnature.org), a national movement which provides a wealth of resources to use with your families to "Leave No Child Inside: Prevent Nature Deficit Disorder", we share our experiences in creating and maintaining new salmon and turtle habitats, preserving wildlife and eliminating non-native invasive plants and animals. We are also the Oregon site for TimberNook (https://www.timbernook.com/), an international program providing nature-based, child-led play experiences that challenge the senses and inspire creativity, independence, and imagination in the great outdoors.
