Register today!

This event is free of charge. Please bring your own lunch, snacks and water.
Address for our meeting place is coming soon! The forest is 15 minutes from Oregon State University.

Join this event in McDonald-Dunn Forest, north of Corvallis, with Dr. Joan Hagar of the US Geological Survey (USGS). The McDonald-Dunn Research Forest is owned and managed by Oregon State University and consists of 11,000 acres of mostly forested lands at the junction of the Willamette Valley and the eastern foothills of the coast range.  The forest features a variety of forest types and management themes (even-aged, two-storied, and uneven aged, as well as a number of stands of old growth) allow for side-by-side comparisons of forest management practices.  The location provides a rare opportunity to contrast forest management approaches with an eye toward how avian communities use the resulting habitat features.
