Jobs at TFC

For information on available positions with the Oregon Department of Forestry, check out the ODF Employment page.

The Tillamook Forest Center invites you to consider sharing your passion and experience to help make the center a memorable place for visitors. Whether assisting with programs, meeting and greeting visitors in the exhibit hall or on the trails, working in the gift shop and at the information desk, or helping behind the scenes, volunteers bring their own special insights and know-how to the Tillamook Forest Center team.

Volunteer positions are available for most ages, and we are always open to new ideas. If you are looking for a rewarding way to share your love of forests, looking to get involved in your community, or need to complete a service project, then consider spending some quality time in the Tillamook State Forest.
