Alpacas by Cari Garrigus

The Willamette Valley's agricultural land offers an abundance of farm animals including cows, horses, sheep, pigs, chickens and even alpacas! Drive the scenic byways during the springtime to see baby animals, or stop by a petting zoo for up close interactions. Hire a truffle dog for forest foraging. From aquariums to hatcheries, there are a variety of fun and educational arenas throughout the region.
