Volunteers needed to lead students at PLC ‘In the Woods Show’

Volunteers needed for kidsThe Pacific Logging Congress is looking for 400 volunteers for its upcoming In the Woods Show, September 25-26, at at the Port Blakely Tree Farm in Molalla, Ore.

Volunteers will help guide approximately 3,000 students, K-12, as they view the most high-tech, environmentally advanced logging methods available.

“It’s important to keep students in touch with the forest,” says Duane Evans, vice president of forestry operations, who is also serving as PLC’s 2014 president. “They should understand where wood and paper come from, how trees are harvested, and how we manage this forest for a variety of products, as well as environmental benefits.”

Anyone interested should contact Julie Woodward, OFRI’s forest education program manager, at woodward@ofri.org.
