Hi ladies, my family and I will be moving to Corvallis next month. Does anyone have recommendations for good ways to get connected to the natural mothering crowd?

My kids are 4 and 6. I'm interested in finding a summer camp or some kind of summer activity program for my 4 year old. Also, I would love recommendations for a great yoga class and open minded pediatricians. Thanks!!  Kelly

I live in Lebanon (25 min from Corvallis) and am a big Corvallis fan.


There are lots of great natural family living resources there:


- First Alternative Co-op


- Corvallis Babywearers


- LLL Willamette Valley (find them on facebook)


Corvallis has a farmer's market on Wednesdays and Saturdays that you should check out, a Trader Joe's, several yoga studios, homeschoolers and charter school options.

I'm looking to move there in a year for grad school at OSU. My oldest boys are also 4 and 6! (and I have a 1.5 yr old) I'd like to follow this thread :) I visited a couple weeks ago and loved it!

Honestly you can't go wrong with any of the Peds in town, I have found. I have ALWAYS only used pre-screened Family Doctors for my LOs before we moved, but now we see a Ped, in a Corporate Practice @ that and we are ALL good. We are not a Vax family to date. No trouble. Now does my primary AGREE? Not necessarily but he wouldn't have even brought it up if I hadn't. And we saw someone else on a sick visit in the same office and she didn't even ask about our status! PM me if you want the names, I picked my primary because he has a reputation for having excellent clinical judgement. (I am an herbalist so I am not looking for herbal input from MDs, if I go to the Ped it is because I want Western Medical diagnosis/care). I just went in for an ear irritation & it did turn out to be infected but the Ped specifically was supportive of me continuing the herbal regimen he was on & doing watchful waiting & she printed me out a script *just in case* but only wanted me to use it if necessary.



There is also Lincoln Health Center that many people go there and they are fine with Select/No/Delay also. IDK about the Corvallis Clinic, but they really may be accomodating too, they are a physician owned practice, which is in itself, interesting.


Looks like you will be here soon! Hope to catch up with you when you get here!

There is also a fairly large waldorf school at the old Fairview school on highway 20. Corvallis is a great place for naturally minded families. I really miss it!
