Oregon Well Water Program
The goal of the Well Water Program is to help Oregonians protect the groundwater that supplies their drinking water through education.
Oregon Forestry Education Program (OFEP)
OFEP's educates Oregonians about forests and forest resources and to prepare them to make informed decisions, exhibit responsible behavior, and take constructive action concerning the future of Oregon's forests.
The Forestry Extension Program and its partners offer a variety of events for the general public, educators, and young people. Through these events we help people understand the complex ecological, social, and economic values associated with natural resource issues in Oregon. It is our intent to raise awareness and provide information for informed decision-making at the local, state, and federal level.
