Can you believe that around 120 inches of rain falls on the Tillamook Forest Center every year? While there are no monkeys or toucans in this temperate rainforest, the lush mosses, fast-growing Douglas-fir trees, acrobatic salmon, and slimy banana slugs that live in the Tillamook State Forest depend on our wet and soggy winters. Grab your raingear (if weather permits) and experience the wonders that the rain brings on a short, family-friendly stroll around the Center.
This program is provided in partnership with the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership as part of the Explore Nature series. Explore Nature is a collaboration of environmental organizations working together to provide meaningful, nature-based events to showcase the uniqueness of Tillamook County and the work being done to conserve the area’s natural resources, restore biodiversity, and preserve natural resource-based industries.
