Meet five Fellows from around the world who came to Oregon to see how we meet global forestry challenges. They hope to take what they’ve learned here to improve their communities back home. Fellows will be sharing their project findings and how they are planning to implement their new knowledge back home. What we do in Oregon is inspiring people to impact their own corner of the planet.
