To create awareness and appreciation for the value of trees, and encourage an understanding about the protection, management and conservation of the renewable forest

Oregon Women in Timber (OWIT) will be hosting their 30th Annual Talk About Trees Auction virtually, on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.

The theme is RESILIENCE! 2020 presented many challenges for OWIT members and their Talk About Trees Program. The auction theme speaks directly to the strength and determination of forest professionals, Oregon families and our communities despite devastating wildfires and COVID-19.

The silent auction will be available from Saturday, February 20th to Saturday, February 27th.    The live auction will be held Wednesday, February 24th to Saturday, February 27th, with a live virtual event on Wednesday from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM, in conjunction with the 83rd Oregon Logging Conference events.

All proceeds from the auction will benefit OWIT’s statewide education program, Talk About Trees (TAT). This award-winning program provides free, forest education to students in preschool through eighth grade. The goals of the TAT Program are to encourage awareness and appreciation for the value of trees and forests in our daily lives and to encourage an understanding about the protection, management and conservation of the renewable forest.

OWIT continues to partner with Oregon Logging Conference to raise funds for the OLC Scholarship Foundation and Talk About Trees Program, through the sale of the 2021 Commemorative lapel pin. The “Partners in Education” pins will be offered for $100. (This year there will be no prize awarded due to regulations regarding the online purchase of raffle tickets.)

OWIT has members around the state that will gratefully pick up your generous donations. Please contact [email protected] for arrangements.  Contributions are critical to the ongoing success of TAT. OWIT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, all donations and purchases are tax deductible. The volunteers of OWIT, the TAT Program and millions of students throughout the state of Oregon thank you for your continued support!

Save the date, Wednesday, February 24th, and watch for more details on how to participate. A registration site will be posted in early February to the OWIT Facebook page, website: www.orwit.org, and in upcoming issues of the OLC newsletter.  To donate to the auction, please click here to download the donation form.
