Explore Oregon’s forests with us.

Participate in science-based learning experiences that help you appreciate Oregon's diverse forest ecosystems and make informed decisions regarding forest policy and management. For example, our Master Naturalist Program offers opportunities to learn about the natural history of plants, animals, habitats, geology, culture, as well as the most relevant topics in sustainable natural resource management.

Find your people.

Our community-based groups, such as the Women Owning Woodlands Network and Master Woodland Manager Program, get together to learn with – and from – other landowners who value Oregon’s forests and communities.

Dig into our educational resources

Our catalog includes dozens of free publications, videos, webinars, and podcasts, covering a wide variety of topics, such as forest health, forest management planning, and estate and succession planning.

Protect what you care about.

The Fire Program and the Citizen Fire Academy, Ties to the Land succession planning, and forest health offerings are all tailored to help you keep your property safe from wildfire or insect and disease outbreaks, and to build a legacy for future generations.
