Extension looking for local logs for Education Center

Clackamas Extension’s new Education Center is in the final design stages, getting ready to go to bid, and looking ahead to breaking ground next spring.

The Center will house all staff and programs now located at the Extension Office on Warner Milne Road in Oregon City. The new center will be one of a kind—an all-wood advanced technology public building with a modern-style Cascadian look, featuring cross laminated timber, mass plywood, and built with as much locally-sourced wood as possible. The building will be an education unto itself, showcasing Clackamas County forests, our landowners and the history of the family forestry movement, and the next generation of wood products for sustainable design and construction.

The Center will include peeled log columns in the two entry facades plus detailing around the 22,000 square foot building. Approximately ten 16” diameter logs (lengths 8’ to 24’) plus twenty 12” diameter logs (lengths 8’ to 24’) will be needed.

If you’d like to have your tree farm’s wood products built into the new Extension Education Center in Oregon City, please contact Mike Bondi at the Clackamas Extension office. All donors will be recognized for their contributions. We can work with multiple product providers to make this request happen. Wood will need to be available in summer 2020.
