Magnus Tree Farm Info (http://www.worldforestry.org/Facilities/magfac.html)

For your next business retreat or social function, revel in the bounty of northwest trees, plants, a forest stream, and broad meadow at the World Forestry Center's Magness Memorial Tree Farm.


Located four miles west of Wilsonville, Oregon, the site is named for Howard and Panzy   Magness, who donated their Ladd Hill property to the center in 1977.

Versatile in use, the tree farm's rustic picnic shelter, grassy meadow, and Edmund Hayes Forestry Education Center are available for family gatherings and reunions, groups picnics, special events, meetings, and retreats. Nestled along the meadow, three log bunkhouses can be rented for overnight outdoor schools, group camping or scouting outdoor adventures.

For a seasonal option, move indoors to the Edmund Hayes Forestry Education Center that is equipped with a full kitchen and modern facilities. Tables and chairs inside as well as outside picnic tables provide both meeting space and a jumping off point for your forest adventure.

Other site amenities include a covered picnic shelter with barbecue grill and fire pit, a half-mile paved forest interpretive trail, hiking trails, throughout the property, and ample free parking. Highlights include a 60-foot historic fire tower, where you can treat your group to spectacular vistas of the Willamette Valley and surrounding peaks.

     Our meadow is one-half acre and easily accommodates groups up to 150
