Starker Forests Tours

Take a Starker Forests Tour and tour a gorgeous working forest!

Free guided tours of beautiful Starker Forests are available in July and August. Starker Forests Tours are about three and a half hours long. The tour involves, among other activities, a 1/4-mile walk , where you will learn about the different practices of forest management that Starker Forests applies.

Special, all-day tours happen three times this season. On these days, you’ll tour the Georgia Pacific Mill in the morning, followed by the guided tour of Starker Forests in the afternoon.

The Starker Forests and Georgia Pacific Mill Tours are free. Reservations are required. Call Visit Corvallis at 800-334-8118 or 541-757-1544 to make reservations. For those signing up 10 or more people, please call to make arrangements to take tour on a different day of the week. (We like to leave the Wednesday tour available for those reserving for smaller groups, pairs, or by themselves.)
