Field Study Activities
The Oregon Trail Overnight program has three to four primary field study areas.
In the Wilderness explores various reasons that people came west toward Oregon and looks at the livelihoods of the early settlers of the Oregon country.
On the Trail takes us back to the days of the pioneer and what was included in preparing for and traveling across the land to Oregon.
At the Homestead draws us into the difficult life faced by the pioneers as they arrived in Oregon Country and began building their new homes.
At the cabin focuses on life at the homestead after the cabin was built and takes a look at all the work done at a homestead to meet the basic needs of life.
