Our quarterly newsletters
are filled with interesting and timely information
This Winter's newsletter has a "focus on a year of living with the coronavirus pandemic and how we have carried on"
- President Steve Ellis
We stay up to date on National Forest management and issues
as well as Pacific Northwest Research accomplishments.
When we begin to see "normal" after the pandemic,
We'll be gathering for lunch the last Friday of each month
at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Portland, OR,
and each year at a banquet in May and a picnic in August.
See Events for more information.
