The Oregon Forest Resources Institute (OFRI) has redesigned its website -- a hub and jumping-off point for forest information, resources, and activities. Interactive features offer visitors the chance to discover more about Oregon forest ownership, history, management, tree types, and more. Campers, hikers, and others looking for outdoor recreation and education will find it useful, as well as students wanting objective information about the state's abundant natural resources.
In addition to accessing outdoor recreation information, site visitors can download publications, watch videos, research forest management techniques and legal protections, learn about wood products, and get career and economic information.
Curious minds can use a new "Ask a Forester" feature to get answers from the experts. There's even a blog, written by OFRI staff and guest columnists.
For K-12 teachers and forestry educators, OFRI is simultaneously launching http://www.learnforests.org/.
