Want to take your students on a great field trip next fall? Consider the Pacific Logging Congress’s 7th “In the Woods” show. It’s held only once every four years and offers an up close view of the forest industry. 

Registration is now open for the Pacific Logging Congress education days. The live demonstration of contemporary logging, is aimed at fourth to 12th graders and will be held Sept. 25 and 26 at Port Blakely Tree Farm near Molalla, about 30 miles northeast of Salem.

What to Expect 
Students will participate in hands-on activities that tie in with STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education. They will see innovative tree harvesting technology, learn how today’s practices protect habitat and water quality for fish and wildlife, and be exposed to an array of forest-related careers.  Professionals from the forest sector will guide each group.  

Transportation
The event runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day, and each group will need approximately three hours for the tour. The event is free and reimbursement for bus costs is available. 

Space is limited, so sign-up soon. Click HERE for details and to register.
