These photos are from a day trip to the Tillamook Forest Center about a month ago. The museum exhibits are well designed and there are several walking trails around the facility. I'm fascinated by the management of natural areas in Oregon, and across the Pacific Northwest in general. I moved to Oregon from Connecticut, so I've been interested in learning about the science of wilderness management on such a large scale. Environmental stewardship is emphasized daily (hourly?) out here, in a way that was almost completely absent from my experience of New England.
