The Pacific Logging Congress “Live in the Woods” show to be held September 25-27, 2014, isn’t just for loggers.
The event, which will take place at the Port Blakely Tree Farms in Molalla, Ore., is expected to host as many as 2,000 elementary school children and teachers from the Portland area and southwest Washington.
“Education is our top priority,” said PLC’s 2014 President Duane Evans, a Vice President of Timberlands for Port Blakely Tree Farms.
The students and teachers will view the safest and most environmentally advanced logging methods available. Each individual is supplied with a hard hat and each group of students is guided by a professional forester. Bus transportation will be paid by Oregon Forest Resources Institute, Portland, Oregon and the Pacific Forest Foundation.
