We need your help to make the pavilon a reality!

Whether here for a field trip, taking part in an interpretive program, or stopping for a picnic, visitors always encounter the dynamic weather of Oregonís north Coast Range. Hot summer days and heavy spring and fall rains leave many people longing for a place to get out of the heat or to dodge raindrops. The pavilion will make that possible.

Designed to be consistent with the main structureís design, the pavilion will be nestled in the trees southwest of the Center for efficient group movement. Portable benches inside will provide seating for over 100 people, while serving as a gathering area for interpretive programs, a lunch space for students and visitors, a place to retreat from the weather, and also a facility for community events and meetings.

Oregon-grown and produced timber products will be showcased in the new structure. Glass walls on three sides ensure that the pavilion will provide shelter from the elements while providing a gateway for learning about the forest.

The new Forest Education Pavilion will help us build capacity to host increasing numbers of visitors and school groups, allowing us to continue our mission of inspiring people to connect with the Tillamook State Forest. Your contribution, whether large or small, will have a great impact and help us keep you covered.
