Winter Update

Talk About Trees Facilitators met last week to help with our annual auction, sponsored by Oregon Women in Timber (OWIT). In addition to the auction, we helped with Oregon Logging Conference (OLC) School Tours. Each year the OLC tours are coordinated by Forests Today and Forever (FTF) and are sponsored by FTF, OWIT and OLC. Our final day in Eugene was spent on Professional Development, exploring how TAT relates to the Next Generation Science Standards, The Oregon Forest Literacy Program and the Oregon Forest Literacy Plan. These documents are available on this site.
