100 Fascinating People, Places and Facts

The Oregon Department of Forestry’s NASF #CentennialChallenge theme is Oregon Forestry: 100 Fascinating People, Places and Facts. The project aims to engage Oregonians in a fun and informative way that encourages them to learn more about the diverse array of people, places, and historical events that define forestry in Oregon.


Theme: Oregon Forestry: 100 Fascinating People, Places and Facts

Delivery: 100 Instagram posts across five categories (one for each day of the work week)—Forest History, People in Forestry, Places to Visit, Forest Facts, and Forestry Fun for kids.

Timeframe: April 13—August 28, 2020 (20 weeks)
