Winter 2020 | Volume 14, Number 1
Remember the Tillamook Forest Heritage Trust and the Tillamook Forest Center in your annual giving
 
Honor a loved one, give a unique gift, or demonstrate your love of forests and rivers with a year-end contribution to the Tillamook Forest Heritage Trust in support of education and recreation on state forests. You can choose to support the Tillamook Forest Center or the new State Forest Recreation Fund, or both!
 
Tillamook Forest Center (TFC) has three ways to commemorate your gift on art installations: 
  1. An inscribed tree medallion in the TFC plaza ($75 gift)
  2. An engraved stone on the slate tree in the TFC lobby ($150-$350)
  3. Add a metal fish to the new Fish Run sculpture adjacent to the Wilson River ($250-$1,000) 
For a TFC donation form, or to make an online donation, click here .

State Forest Recreation Fund is a new fund established to support outdoor recreation enhancements on Oregon’s state forests. Your gift of any amount will help enable the ability to meet the rapidly growing demand for both motorized and non-motorized recreation use on state forests and improve opportunities and access.

Behind the scenes of winter closure
Sometimes you have to make a mess to fix something. Winter closure allows TFC staff to work on projects without impacting visitors.
Another set of helping hands
As the year comes to a close, we are blessed with another set of helping hands. After retiring from NW Natural as a service technician, David Luna was seeking a place to share his customer service skills and love for the outdoors. He landed at the TFC as a facility assistant volunteer just as the winter projects are in full force! Besides volunteering, David enjoys music, art lessons, and being socially active with his friends and family. We are grateful to have him join the team and lend a helping hand.
