Creating and Inspiring Champions of Sustainable Forestry
Founded in 1966, the World Forestry Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating and inspiring champions of sustainable forestry. Based in Portland, Oregon, we provide critical programs in convening and professional development of global leaders and practitioners in forestry and related fields. Through our International Fellowship Program, we have hosted public and private forest professionals from over 40 countries to advance research, networking, and knowledge exchange.
Our Discovery Museum was opened in 1971 to educate the general public about local and global forests and sustainable forestry. Magness Memorial Tree Farm, our premier demonstration forest located near Sherwood, Oregon, offers a hands-on outdoor approach to environmental learning.
Our campus hosts over 65,000 visitors each year, many from other non-profits that use our space for gatherings, events, and meetings.
Our board, staff and global network of partners, are working together to make the World Forestry Center an epicenter of collaborative activity, where similarly-focused organizations work together toward local and international solutions to climate change and forest health.
