Nestled in verdant rolling hills, Silvan Ridge Winery complements its grapey varietals with a menu of easily chewable eats. Gourmet cheese plates tickle tongues with a variety of aromatic curds from Spring Valley Dairy in nearby Keizer—including dill havarti, smoked gouda, and brie ($7)—and 8-inch wood-fired pizzas ($6.50–$7.50) and crispy caesar side salads ($4.50) carry hunger away as swiftly as hungry warriors plundering an empty pantry. An outdoor patio and surrounding grassy slopes afford picnickers eyefuls of grapevine-laced hills; inside, the fireside room gives couples an excuse to cozy up next to a wood-burning blaze and share a creamy wedge of cheesecake for two ($4). Complimentary wine tastings greet all visitors of legal age.

Beautiful sylvan surroundings and ample training space greet visitors eager to jump in the saddle for Triple Rise Equestrian Center’s hunter/jumper lessons. Owner Rachel Marcotte, an Equestrian Studies graduate of Centenery College, ensures that her grounds and programs stay orderly and ride-ready. This focus on professionalism is what first attracted the University of Oregon Equestrian Team, which now calls the center its home turf. Though fit for highly competitive equestrians, the center also caters to the everyday rider with tailored programs and lessons. Students learn proper technique inside a 70 x 200m indoor arena or in the large outdoor arena, trotting upon footing that’s replaced every six months in order to keep it fresh and cover up any tracks to the platinum horseshoes that are buried in the middle. Youngsters ages 6 to 12 can also make a smooth foray into the sport or brush up on already-acquired skills during five-day summer camps.
Founded by award-winning bird rehabilitator Louise Shimmel, the Cascades Raptor Center houses more than 60 birds and a wildlife hospital whose staff has treated thousands of injured birds of prey. More than 30 native Oregon species, including eight types of hawks and 11 types of owls, perch in the center's capacious aviaries, each placed along serene forest trails. As visitors meander through the trees, the piercing gaze of ospreys, kites, and falcons shoot through the enclosures while bald and golden eagles show off their awe-inspiring wingspans and fashionable haircuts. During educational talks (1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, November through March; noon and 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, April through October), handlers bring raptors out on their thick gloves to pose for portraits and field questions on their favorite rodents or brands of talon polish. In addition, a Screech Owl membership lets an individual waltz through the center's gates for free throughout the year, as well as bequeathing a guest pass for a friend who shares their fondness for feathery predators.
