Forestry and Natural Resources

Welcome! The forestry and natural resources program brings research-based education to forest owners and managers, forest workers, teachers, youth, and the general public. Our goal is to improve Oregonians' knowledge of forest resources and options for enhancing and sustaining benefits from these resources.

We bring state and national expertise to the community through our affiliation with the OSU Forestry and Natural Resources Extension Program and the OSU College of Forestry.
