about the program

The Oregon Story Series

Since 1997, OPB has been developing educational programming and supplementary Web content to encourage statewide education about Oregon's relationship with the land. This chapter of The Oregon Story explores volunteering as a key indicator of Oregonians' engagement with each other, their community, and the State.

Funding for The Oregon Story: Rethinking the Forests is provided through the Education Program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture/Rural Development.
