Join us as for a wildlife-focused walking tour of the beautiful 140-acre Hopkins Demonstration Forest! 


This workshop will be led by two great wildlife biologists: Fran Cafferata-Coe, certified wildlife biologist with extensive consulting experience in applied wildlife biology on working forests; and Jimmy Taylor, research wildlife biologist for the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) in Corvallis.

After a brief indoor orientation/discussion period, this will be a walking tour of the 140-acre Hopkins Demonstration forest, featuring the variety of wildlife management opportunities and challenges across many different forest management units and types. The workshop will provide extensive opportunities for Q & A throughout the day. Topics to be covered at multiple stops include:

  • Biology and management of key species including deer, river beaver, mountain beaver, birds, amphibians, and predators.
  • Managing habitat features including snags, down wood, and forest canopy structure.
  • Methods of damage prevention and protection.
  • “Calling” for owls and other species.
  • Wildlife inventory techniques & game camera demonstration.
  • Opportunities and challenges around ponds, wetlands, streams and wildlife.

Morning coffee and other refreshments provided. Dress for a field day (rain or shine) and bring your own lunch.

This event is free, but space is limited. Register online
