Happy New Year!

2015 brought many exciting changes for Talk About Trees, Oregon.

In March, a new Forest Careers Classroom Program was introduced and it has been very well received by teachers.  We also had several facilitators retire, or move on to new endeavors.  We will miss Linda Brodeur, Laurie Hayden Melissa Jackman and Sandy Reid.  Collectively, they represented more than 50 years teaching the TAT Classroom Program!  We have replaced these veteran educators with wonderful, diverse, energetic teachers.  We welcome Heidi Heidig in Southern Oregon, Tammie Milkes, Jenn Scott, Lisa Wilcke in the Portland Metro area and Anna Morgan in Eastern Oregon.
