Tillamook Forest Center

I've mentioned the Forest Center a couple of times. The website is http://www.tillamookfrestcenter.org unfortuently the website IMO does not do justice to the center. Located in the forest the center has coast range views with frontage on the Wilson River. The displays depict the forest ecosystems, lots of displays about the Native American forest use, how the settlers gradually began to harvest and travel through the woodlands. Displays on logging practices, extensive diplays on the Tillamook Forest Burns of the 1930's and 40's, on the reforestation projects and on the current Tillamook Forst plan. The Forest Center is on Oregon Hwy 6, the Wilson River Hwy about one hour west of downtown Portland, RV parking is available. Nice restrooms and snack bar available.

I hope a few of you local experts will have an opportunity to stop in. I do not work work there but I do live in the area.

I have chapperoned a field trip to the area, but to the homestead facility instead. Didn't this new center just open about a year ago? Need to go check it out.

Next time we go to coast at Tillamook a definite stop. we tried to do that in Nov when we went to Manzanita, but OR-6 was closed, as were several other roads.

I thought you folks were discussing the forestry center near the old OMSI site and the zoo. Thanks for this information, Tyr52.
