On May 3, 2019, the Forest History Society (FHS) officially opened their new library, archives, and headquarters. Along with their newest archival collection, a compendium of maps, photos, moving footage, and 20,000 documents on the history of the Oregon-American Lumber Company, they are exploring new programs and educational outreach opportunities, and welcoming researchers from around the US and the world.
The Forest History Society is a nonprofit library and archive dedicated to collecting, preserving, and disseminating forest and conservation history for all to use. The Society links the past to the future while reminding us about our important forest heritage.
As part of our mission, FHS is continually seeking innovative ways of enhancing its programs in research, publication, and education, and new methods for promoting the study of environmental history. Towards that end, you’ll now find us on Facebook and Twitter and blogging at Peeling Back the Bark. We invite you to take a tour of FHS, and then explore the website and discover your forest heritage!
We encourage you to find the time to explore their website.
