The Andrews Forest Fund

"To peer much further down the line requires not only empathy for those who follow, but also faith in the future—even if you won't be there to see it for yourself... Maybe looking to the future is a way of hoping there will still be something to see when we get there. Maybe it's the only way to make sure of it."

—Robert Michael Pyle, excerpt from "The Long Haul," Orion magazine, Sept/Oct 2004
Andrews Forest Writer in Residence


Your gift to support the Andrews Forest is an investment in the long-term viability of our forests and streams. Private gifts allow the program to enhance its programs beyond what is possible through state and federal funding. Simply put, your gift helps the Andrews Forest achieve a new level of excellence.

Tax-deductible donations of cash, appreciated securities, or property of any amount can be used to support the important work at the Andrews Forest. At present, the Andrews Forest has three funds:

  • A general Andrews Forest Fund. Donations for specific, near-term projects are deposited in this fund, so expenditures can be made when required.

  • The HJ Andrews Forest Long-Term Measurements Program Endowment. Established in 2005, income from this endowment supports the long-term measurement program at and associated with the ecosystem program at Andrews Forest.

  • The HJ Andrews Experimental Forest Endowment Fund. Established in 2007, income from this endowment provides unrestricted support for the Andrews Forest, but asks that some funds be used to broaden the scope of Andrews Forest programs and outreach efforts.

You can also create a named endowment, with a minimum gift of $25,000, which will generate funds to support a program in perpetuity. This type of gift is a wonderful way to honor an individual, family, or organization. For more information, please contact the OSU Foundation at 800-354-7281.

The Andrews Forest: Where Ecosystems are Revealed

The H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest is the hub of a cooperative program of research, education, and research-management partnership involving Oregon State University and the USDA Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest Research Station and Willamette National Forest. The mission of this partnership is to support basic and applied research concerning forests, streams, and watersheds, and to foster strong collaboration among ecosystem science, outreach, natural resource management, and the humanities.
