"It was a lovely fall day out in the woods touring the Oregon State University Collins Demonstration Forest."


On October 16 from 1 – 3pm, JASO enjoyed a tour the Collins Demonstration forest in Gold Hill. The Collins Demonstration Forest is the newest experimental forest in the OSU system, and here OSU is working hard, studying how climate change, wildfire and natural processes are impacting healthy forests. The first half of the tour was consist of a walk-around and explanation from OSU Extension Forester Max Bennett and the second half had time for pinecone crafts with the kids and snacks.
