The Sauvie Island Center serves elementary school youth of Portland by providing hands-on educational field trips at our Sauvie Island location in Metro’s Howell Territorial Park. Our trips take place on the Sauvie Island Organics farm. Through our education programs, the Center seeks to increase the food, farm, and environmental literacy of the next generation.


We will also be holding a small silent auction for a range of great items from our generous sponsors, including: Laughing Planet, the Urban Farm Store, Portland Nursery, Grand Central Baking, Patagonia, Cistus Nursery, Garden Fever and many others. We are located less than a mile from the bridge on Sauvie Island at 13605 NW Howell Park Rd Portland, OR 97231.
