Wolftree, Inc. is a 501(c) 3 charitable non-profit corporation that was established in 1994. Our
mission is to serve people and their communities through innovative science education,
ecosystem restoration, and ecological research. Wolftree’s administrative offices are located in
Portland and Sisters, Oregon from which we serve many communities across Oregon and
SW Washington. These offices support ten field sites, including our acclaimed Cascade
Streamwatch education facility located on the Salmon River near the base of Mt. Hood.
Since 1994, Wolftree has served over 150,000 students in the Pacific Northwest. Dozens of professionals from more
than 65 organizations have been trained to guide young people on outdoor scientific studies. With Wolftree’s
numerous long-standing and strong partnerships in the region, we have the capacity and resources to empower local
citizens to make permanent relationships between diverse sectors of the community. At a time when funds for
education are being drastically reduced, Wolftree fulfills a need for additional opportunities. Wolftree’s well established
connections with Latino and female student populations can help to prepare these groups for the rising
demand for scientists, engineers, and computer specialists. From these connections, an educated core of caring
residents will be better able to make complex decisions concerning our natural resources.
Wolftree is a private education organization. We are advocates for fostering invaluable connections among citizens and
their public and private lands around them. We present information in a non-value laden, unbiased, objective forum.
Participants are then better prepared to make their own choices about how they interact with the environment and
We provide the common ground for community stewardship, attracting partners from a wide spectrum of political and
economic interests. All of our programs are “hands-on” and provide a unique opportunity for participants to hone their
problem-solving skills through authentic studies of forest and aquatic ecosystems. Our graduates will make decisions
that are based on knowledge rather than emotion. They will have the skills to utilize new technologies and engage in advanced science inquiry. We believe that getting people excited about science may be the
single most enduring contribution Wolftree provides. Educated, aware, and informed citizens will help our public and
private resource managers make wise decisions about the future of our natural resources.
Wolftree is a proud sponsor
of the award winning Cascade Streamwatch, Science the Forest, the Golden Eagle CAM,and Project-based science education.
All of our education projects directly engage participants in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM pdf)
