The OSAF executive committee agrees: we want our members to go out into the community and “do good things" to support the mission of the Society of American Foresters. If you have a forestry-related idea and need a few dollars to make it happen, the Oregon Special Projects Fund will help you quickly and easily secure the financial support you need so you can make your project idea a reality. The Oregon Special Projects fund (OSPF) was started back in 2010.
