Nestled in the lush green landscape of the Tillamook State Forest at milepost 22.5 on Highway 6, the Oregon Department of Forestry's education and recreation center is a portal for a variety of experiences from learning about forest ecosystems to hiking along the scenic Wilson River to hearing about Oregon history from seasoned interpretive specialists.
