Each year, in conjunction with the Oregon Logging Conference Oregon Women in Timber, and Forests Today & Forever provide hundreds of local fourth and fifth grade students with an educational tour of the Oregon Logging Conference. Students learn a little about Oregon’s timbered past, present and future.
In 2012, “the tour” will take place Thursday, Feb. 23, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, please contact Program Coordinator LaRae Ash at (541) 767-9078 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
About the Tour
Forests Today & Forever says, “Adding to the lessons, professional foresters give the students a glimpse into their role in utilizing and protecting our woodlands, while providing an up-close and personal look at the tools of the trade.
The foresters talk about their daily duties and share their cruiser’s vest with its compass, clinometer, D-tape, increment borer, maps, aerial photos — and of course — the essential rain gear and heavy caulked boots.”
