TILLAMOOK FOREST - Now open for the season, the Tillamook Forest Center will play host to a variety of public events this March in the heart of the Tillamook State Forest.
Two opportunities to learn about one of the region’s most unique mammals —Oregon’s state mammal, the hard working beaver — will be on Saturday, March 21 and Sunday, March 22 at 12:30 p.m. each day.
The beaver has played an important role in the Pacific Northwest ecosystem for eons, and are an integral part of Oregon history, lending their name to Oregon’s nickname, “the Beaver State,” due to their significance in the early history . . .
