Located an hour west from downtown Portland, near milepost 22 on Wilson River Highway 6, the center provides visitors a unique opportunity to explore the past, present, and future of the Tillamook State Forest and Oregon forestry through artifacts, personal stories, photos, film, exhibits, games, computer simulations, and interpreter-led events. The facility also showcases salmon-watching viewpoints, a suspension bridge spanning the Wilson River, a fire lookout tower, and a network of interpretive trails. From now until Memorial Day, center hours are 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday, and admission is always free.
