|Field Notes from 2010 Intern Hillary Hogan
As OPRD's Forestry Intern, I helped in laying the groundwork for a statewide forest inventory of OPRD's parks. Using aeriel photos and ArcGIS, I timber typed the state parks where a forest inventory would be appropriate. To supplement the computer work, I made several day trips with OPRD's Forester to "ground truth" some of our designated stands.
I assisted in overseeing a timber sale operation at Silver Falls State Park, timber cruising at Cascadia State Park and assisted in stocking surveys at H.B. Van Duzer.
Working for OPRD this summer has opened a door of career possibilities to me.
