Tillamook Tales
Second Saturdays: May 10th (Frogs), June 7th

11:30 am

It’s story time at the Tillamook Forest Center!
Join us to explore the forest through stories, songs, and activities – geared for young children (ages 3-6) and their caregivers. We will start off with an engaging children’s story and follow up with a fun activity; sure to entertain the wee ones. Each month we will host a different forest adventure, so come along and let our naturalists tell you a Tillamook Tale! This program is FREE and will be held the second Saturday of each month at the Tillamook Forest Center and includes a snack.

Please note: April 12 we are hosting our annual Arbor Week Tree Plant and will not be offering Tillamook Tales.

Salmon Release Walk
Mid-May - Specific dates and times coming soon!

Submerge yourself in the world of salmon. In the Tillamook State Forest, salmon live in the cool, clear rivers that run through the Coast Range. Join us to explore life cycles, habitat requirements, and the underwater oasis of these dynamic fish. We will be exploring the wild salmon habitat as we walk a short distance to release live small fry into Jones Creek.
