Spend time in the forest this summer
The Tillamook Forest Center, 45500 Wilson River Highway, will be open for special summer programs in June, July and August.
The center will host preschool story times the second Saturdays of the month at 11:30 a.m. This Saturday, June 13, the story will focus on butterflies. In July, the story will be about bats. Augusts story will focus on berries, and September will bring raptors to life (no, not the kind found in Jurassic Park).
Guest presenter Dr. Ed Jensen will give a special presentation at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 14, about Pacific Northwest trees and shrubs. Admission is $15. Learn to identify plants in a 30-minute workshop and then stroll through the trails to practice and learn about the plants historical and cultural uses, ecology and relationship with its environment.
In late June (estimated dates are June 26 to 28) the center will host a free presentation covering the life cycle and environment of salmon. After the talk, people will release the tiny fry into the Wilson River.
