Talk About Trees is Oregon Women in Timber’s award winning forestry education program. Talk About Trees was created by California Women in Timber in 1980 and was adopted by Oregon Women in Timber in 1991. The program gives an overview of forest ecology, management practices, and forest uses. It is a completely free program, and it incorporates hands on activities to engage students. OWIT has trained facilitators across the state that deliver the program, which is aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards. On a yearly average, 140,000 students, teachers, and parents participate in the Talk About Trees program. Because of this reach, fundraising for Talk About Trees continues to be one of the main activities for OWIT.
