Clark Chapter

In 2021 we celebrated our 2020 selection of Tree Farm of the Year at Ken and Linda Edward's tree farm. Six scholarships were awarded to successful candidates. This scholarship awards ceremony is an important part of the annual summer picnic, and eligible students are encouraged to consider applying for the 2022 scholarship applications, which will be awarded at the 2022 summer picnic. Scholarship application forms can be found in the events tab.

Tree sale committee members are working diligently to source tree material for the 2022 sale. The summer heat has damaged many nursery crops.

Thank you, Betty Davenport for your years of service as Treasurer and the hours you spent to help grow the organization.

 

In 2021 the scholarship committee awarded scholarships to 6 students.

Amanda Plitt - Clark College, Ciera Bump -WSU Vancouver, Mahaelani Bump - WSU Vancouver, and Mahlia Bump - WSU Vancouver, Makayla Smith - Sonoma State University and Arthur Zimmerman (WSU Vancouver).  Members can review the scholarship information for the upcoming 2022 year for more information on how they or family members can apply.

2019 Highlights:

Our very active board of 11 members and numerous other volunteers carried out a number of membership and community activities.

The annual winter potluck drew about 100 members for our annual meeting and elections, with a speaker on trees and climate change, and awarding the Tree Farmer of the Year to Jared and Torun Larwick.

In February and March, members picked up over 70,000 seedlings that we had grown.  In March we had our annual public tree sale selling approximately 9,000 trees to the public. This is our only fund raiser for the chapter and this year we sold out in 3 hours.

Summer brought the annual summer picnic, traditionally at the Chapter's Tree Farm of the Year, the Larwicks. Several other twilight tours were held: thinning at Gillette's, various forest management activities at Bowden's, and an export log session hosted by Pacific, Lumber and Shipping.

We also presented three $1000 college scholarships and supported our local high school forestry programs to go to competitions.

March was our member seedling pick up month whereby we contract grow 70,000 Doug Fir and 10,000 western red cedar for our members at cost - a great incentive to join our chapter!
