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 will be a part of the 80th Annual Oregon Logging Conference and host our 27th Annual Auction to benefit the award winning forest education program, Talk About Trees! The Auction is part of the Meet & Greet festivities at the Eugene Hilton Hotel & Conference Center on Wednesday, February 21, 2018. The doors open at 4:00 PM, when the fun begins. Tickets include a hearty buffet and a relaxed atmosphere to start the bidding for forestry education!

Your attendance at the auction, a direct cash donation or donated auction item will help to continue our success and reach even more students this year.  Getaway trips, jewelry, tickets to sporting events, hunting and fishing items are always a big hit. All donations are very much appreciated.
