New Education Pavilion at Tillamook Forest Center

New Education Pavilion at Tillamook Forest Center

The Tillamook Forest Heritage Trust is continuing its legacy of support for the Tillamook Forest Center through a successful fundraising campaign to build a new outdoor education pavilion at this iconic interpretive center located in the heart of the Tillamook State Forest.  Over the past two years, the Trust raised nearly $500,000 for this project, and construction is now underway. The pavilion will be complete in the coming month, and a grand opening event is set for Friday, June 22, 1:30 – 3:30 P.M. With a capacity of 150, the new pavilion will greatly increase the Center’s ability to host student groups from area schools for outdoor education programs starting this coming fall.  Located on the banks of the Wilson River, just west of Lees Camp, the pavilion will also provide a great shelter for summer travelers and visitors to the Center. We are still raising funds to fully equip and furnish the pavilion in time for the fall education season.
