The World Forest Institute

The World Forestry Center (The World Forest Institute) is a nonprofit educational institution in Portland in the U.S. state of Oregon. Located near the Oregon Zooin Washington Park, the organization was established in 1964 as the Western Forestry Center, with the actual building opening in 1971.
The World Forestry Center has its roots in the 1905 Lewis and Clark Centennial American Pacific Exposition and Oriental Fair for which an enormous log cabin was built of huge native trees and advertised as the world’s largest. Public interest in the Forestry Building, which was turned over to the State of Oregon, lasted long after the exposition ended, right up until it was destroyed by fire on August 17, 1964.
