We’re the region’s largest forest-based learning center and outdoor classroom facility, located 50 miles west of Portland and 22 miles east of Tillamook on Oregon Highway 6.

  • Beautiful place to go, with a ton to do inside and outside. 15 minute movie about the Tillamook Fires. Interactive exhibits. Hikes. A fire tower to climb. Great for all ages. Watch the hours in the Spring & Fall it closes an hour early at 4pm. Summer they close at 5pm.
  • My entire family had an amazing day. Kids loved the lookout tower, education material, and the hike to some small falls was easy and beautiful in the fall! Will return for sure.
