Consider a year-end gift to the Tillamook Forest Heritage Trust
As the non-profit organization that supports the educational mission of the Tillamook Forest Center and recreation on state forest lands, the Trust is reaching out to friends and colleagues to invite you to make a special year-end gift this year.

Two unparalleled events in Oregon in 2020—the wildfires and the pandemic—have affected state forests in incomparable ways. Your gift will make an especially big impact this year.

The pandemic has led to a huge increase in visitation on state forests by those seeking outdoor COVID-safe activities, especially first-time users, placing high demands on recreation staff, recreation infrastructure, and budgets like never before. The wildfires led to huge losses of recreation infrastructure in the Santiam State Forest, and at the same time means an even more important educational role for the Tillamook Forest Center. Interpreting the power of wildfire and the resiliency of the forest are central themes for the TFC. With your support, the TFC will continue to help all of us understand the role and circumstances relating to fire in our state.

New this year, when you donate to the Tillamook Forest Heritage Trust between December 1 and 15, you will be entered into a random drawing to receive one of 40 free passes to the Columbia Sportswear Employee Store (online or in person) for significant discounts, thanks to a generous contribution from Columbia.

By making a gift to the Tillamook Forest Heritage Trust, you become part of our community of those who love the forest, believe in education about forests, and who want to help keep and expand opportunities in the forest for others.

And, Thank You!
