Reaching Out to the Next Generation
The theme for this year's 8th Live In-Woods Show is Reaching Out to the Next Generation.
This theme is particularly important to the the Pacific Logging Conference. Not only is youth education about today's forest industry a priority of the PLC, but the PLC also recently launched its Adopt a High School program to help logging operators connect with students — potential employees of tomorrow.
This year, PLC will host hundreds of high schoolers from Salem, Portland and the surrounding areas at the Live In-Wood Show located at Oregon State University research forest. Our goal is to show them the forest industry firsthand and the potential employment opportunities that could be a part of their future.
If you would like to volunteer to help host these high schooler, please contact Diane Mettler at 360-832-1745 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
