The Oregon Logging Conference Tour provide an interactive and fun lesson in forestry for 4th and 5th graders. At the historic Oregon Logging Conference, which takes place annually in February at the Lane County Fair Grounds, students learn about trees, logging, and reforestation. They meet and interact with a professional forester, and get to tour the large equipment used in logging operations. This is a 1.5 hour lesson/ tour provided in partnership with Oregon Woman in Timber.
“Every year I am very excited for my 5th grade students to attend the Forest Today and Forever field trip. We receive booklets prior to the field trip that teach the students about one of Oregon’s greatest natural resources, trees. When we head to the fairgrounds for our field trip students are able to get a glimpse into the Forestry industry and what the future of forestry looks like. I feel this is great exposure for students who thrive off of being outdoors, love nature, are concerned with the environment, and enjoy the peacefulness and solitude that forestry career can bring. It’s also a lot of fun for the students to see all the big rigs and equipment that day. They are always amazed by the prices and sheer size of the machines. It’s an awesome program that I am so thankful to be able to share with my students.” -Alison Bumstead, Gilham Elementary School, 2018
