Natural resources event set for CCC
Tree School Clackamas, Oregon's largest forestry and natural resource education event of the year, will open registration on Jan. 28.
Tree School will be held at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City on Saturday, March 23.
The program offers 75 different classes covering topics of interest to tree growers. Cost is $55 per person for Clackamas County taxpayers, $70 per person outside of Clackamas County, and $25 for youth ages 6-20 (minors must be with an adult.)
This is the 29th Tree School since its inception in 1991. About 750 woodland owners, foresters, and exhibitors attend the program each year.
Tree School attendees can choose from a wide range of topics to support successful management of their woodlands: forest management, tools and techniques, marketing and business, forest health, weed management, wildlife habitat, and forest fungi, among many other topics.
New opportunities for youth will be offered this year, including a full day of interactive activities for children aged 6-13 years and a "Youth Fire Academy" for young adults ages 14-20 to build knowledge and skills.
"The most popular classes fill within the first week of registration," Ahrens said.
