    Become a Donor and Support Recreation on the OSU Research Forests

    The OSU Research Forests' OSU Foundation Account allows visitors to make a donation to the Recreation and Engagement Program, which further recreation connections to the OSU Research Forests through forest updates, a monthly newsletter, interpretive signs on trails, National Get Outdoors Day, and much more. The funds given through OSU Foundation will enhance the mission of the Recreation and Engagement Program to support and promote an integrated community made up of residents, schools, organizations, the College of Forestry and OSU by offering a high quality local recreation destination and interactive opportunities to learn about forests. 

    Our vision is to offer a variety of enjoyable opportunities for a diverse set of forest visitors to participate in close-to-home recreation and learning activities in a forested environment; a place where residents feel comfortable engaging in outdoor activities with their neighbors and friends, and come away learning something new about forests.

    In order to achieve this mission, the Recreation and Engagement Program focuses on integrating the OSU Research Forests into the fabric of the local community, offering a diversity of high quality, safe, and sustainable recreation opportunities, and managing recreation to be consistent with OSU College of Forestry goals. 

    Your contribution to the Recreation and Engagement Program through the OSU Foundation will:

    • Create new recreation opportunities for all to enjoy.
    • Support community engagement and learning about the natural world.
    • Ensure recreation investments are cared for into the future.
