“Wood is Good: Forest Sector Career Learning” is a free 45-minute to one-hour long interactive classroom presentation for high school students that provides a survey of forest jobs and careers, highlighting the breadth and diversity of employment in the forest sector – from sawmill worker, to driver, to logger, to forester, to admin, etc. The idea is for students to understand the need and availability of high-paying, high-demand jobs that exist right in their local communities. The program intends to spark an interest and help connect students to these great jobs. Mentorship is available for interested students.
This program is offered in Lane County, Douglas County, Benton County, and communities north of Lane County along the 1-5 corridor up to and including Salem, and coastal communities from Newport to Reedsport. Please contact Beth at coordinator@
