Who Is Hopkins Demonstration Forest?
Hopkins Demonstration Forest is a 140-acre privately-owned forest open to the public for self-guided exploration, tours, workshops, and education programs. The goal of the organization is to utilize their forest as an outdoor laboratory where learners are actively engaging in the practice of forestry through practical and hands-on experience. Hopkins Demonstration has hosted over 5,000 K-12 student visits in 2016 and they partner with OSU Extension program to support for small woodland owners through numerous education workshops.

Why We Save Trees
1 Tree can.....Absorb 1 ton of carbon dioxide over the course of its life.
1 Tree can.....Produce nearly 260 pounds of oxygen each year.
1 Tree can.....Provide a habitat for thousands of species of animals and plants.
1 Tree can.....Cool our streets and cities - Trees can cool the earth by blocking sunlight and providing shade. This means that trees also reduce energy use for cooling and heating.
1 Tree can.....Protect against floods and water pollution - Mature trees protect communities against flash floods and landslides by stabilizing soil and absorbing water. Tree roots also filter harmful chemicals and pollutants from storm runoff that ends up in lakes, streams, and rivers. Nearly 57 million people in the United States rely on forests for clean drinking water.
1 Tree can.....Ease the mind during stressful times.
All our Earth Month fundraising is benefiting Hopkins Demonstration Forest.
