Woodland Tours & Education

Local chapters sponsor field tours, giving members the opportunity to observe and learn from other successful land owners.  OSWA also has four to five Howdy Neighbor Tours each year, in partnership with Oregon Forest Resource Institute (OFRI).

During these tours participants can:

  1. Explore new ways to manage your forest for wildlife, timber, water quality and recreation
  2. Learn tips to identify trees, plants and animals found in the forest
  3. Discover Oregon’s environmental and economic issues with a balanced perspective
  4. Learn ways to make your property as fire safe as possible
  5. Learn ways to work safely in the woods
  6. Learn up-to-date information on:
    • Timber and log prices
    • Secondary wood products
    • Actions by governmental regulatory agencies
    • Pending state and national legislation
    • Activities of business leaders and conservation organizations
  7. Have a great time collaborating with friends and neighbors with common interests

Woods Tours are advertised in chapter newsletters and OSWA’s state newsletter “Oregon Family Forest News”. To participate in or host a woods tour, contact the local chapter president, board member, or Jim James.
