The primary goal of the Oregon Forest Resources Institute (OFRI) is to educate the public about forestry and responsible forest management. We actively communicate with the public, educators and forest landowners to better understand the topics and information relevant to each group. Using this information, we produce numerous publications, online resources and videos as well as organize and co-sponsor tours, events and conferences covering a broad range of current forestry-related topics.

OFRI works with educational partners throughout Oregon to create forestry programs for schools and provide resources and professional development to help educators teach about Oregon’s forests. Our quarterly "Forestry for the Classroom" newsletter is full of ideas for bringing forestry into the classroom, including information about educational resources and educator workshops offering innovative ways to teach about forests and natural resources.
