Historic and educational Mary Olson Farm provides free field trips to more than 2,300 students each year.

Every $5 donation covers the cost for a child’s participation to Auburn’s historic farm. Students on field trips learn about the days of subsistence farming – when everyone knew how to make what they needed.

The barn, farmhouse, weaving house, orchard, stream, forests and meadows are ideal locations for hands-on history and science learning. Livestock ambassadors Libby, the Jersey dairy cow, and two mini donkeys Pip and Stinger just love to greet kids.

Donate today and give a child lifelong memories and learning. Donations are tax deductible. Checks are gladly accepted, made out to: White River Valley Historical Society, 918 H St. SE, Auburn, WA 98002, or call 253-288-7433, or visit wrvmuseum.org.
