“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.
This program is offered in a virtual learning format for all Oregon high schools. In-person programs are 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.
