Throughout the month of October, celebrate the wild trails just outside of Portland in the Tillamook State Forest. We’re hosting a photo contest to highlight the critical conservation areas WSC and the North Coast State Forest Coalition are actively working to protect throughout Oregon’s North Coast forests.
Post a photo or video on Instagram of your adventures trekking through the forest using the hashtag #TrektheTillamook, tag @wildsalmoncenter, and include the trail or general location of your adventure in the caption. We’ve got a Poler Napsack, two cases of the Brew Dr. Kombucha flavor of your choice, and Outdoor Project gear to giveaway at the end of the contest to the three winners!
