Prepare for Your Visit
Please download the following materials in order to be prepared for the field trip.
When You Arrive at Oregon Caves
The bus parking area is part of the public parking area. For their safety, please keep your students on the bus until directed by a Park Ranger. A Park Ranger will come aboard the bus and give students, teachers, and parent chaperones a brief orientation.
When You Depart from Oregon Caves
The field trip does not include time for visiting the gift shop. If your school has allotted extra time after the ranger activities are completed, your students may visit the gift shop. There must be at least one adult accompanying each group of four children, with a maximum of 8 students at a time in the gift shop.
Did You Know?
Computer bugs, slang for something gone wrong in a program, are actually named for a real insect. In 1947, technicians working for computer scientist Grace Hopper found a moth inside her computer. The trapped moth was making the machine malfunction. Once removed, they reported that the computer was “debugged”. They taped it onto her notes with a little joke that is now part of our everyday language.
