A Contract with Oregon Forest Resources Institute (OFRI) is the primary financial support for the program, but no less critical is the support from our annual auction, grants, and many, many generous donations from individuals and business. This support and confidence enables Talk About Trees to continue educating Oregonians, young and old, about the valuable resource of our renewable forests. Every donation- large and small- goes a long way to bring sound, science- based forest education into our classrooms. In short, we can’t do it without your support and we thank you!

Oregon Women in Timber was a part of the 79th Annual Oregon Logging Conference and hosted our 26th Annual Auction to benefit the award winning forest education program, Talk About Trees! The Auction was part of the Meet & Greet festivities at the Eugene Hilton Hotel & Conference Center on Wednesday, February 22, 2017. The doors opened at 4:00 PM, when the fun began. Tickets included a hearty buffet and a relaxed atmosphere to start the bidding for forestry education!
