Earth Month - What Does It Mean to Our Community?

We believe that #1treecan make a difference in so many ways. Here is what you can expect and how you can get involved! Thank you for your support!
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 and they partner with OSU Extension program to support for small woodland owners through numerous education workshops.
