An information table will be available to view samples, see pictures and read information about the seedlings. An OSU Extension trained Master Woodland Manager will be there to answer questions and provide information on which trees are best suited for a particular planting site.
For the third year in a row, there will be display and sale of local wood products. While the list of participants has not been completed, we hope to have vendors with native woods and wood products available for viewing and sale.
Portions of the money earned will be used to help fund the Linn County Chapter’s educational programs for youth in Linn County. These include 4-H and college scholarships.
