Membership Profile -  Union County Chapter

Meet a few of the ladies in the Union County Chapter! They remind us that Oregon Women in Timber is not just about women who work in the forest. We are for everyone that supports the forest industry! We appreciate the work these women do at Boise Cascade.

With the emergence of new chapters, we are in the process of creating new brochures, revamping the website and kicking up social media. WE NEED YOUR HELP to do this! We want to showcase our members, our timber families, co-workers and friends that support the timber industry. Send us all your best photos of working, playing, hunting, sawmilling, logging, anything that represents you and your timber heritage. Send it to: info@orwit.org. Watch for future articles in the newsletter about OWIT members and their passion for forestry!
