July Picnic

The CFFA picnic will be at noon on July 20st this year on the Andrews Tree Farm on the Coweeman River up Rose Valley. The lunch will be potluck with Gina providing hamburgers and the chapter supplying beverages. Please bring a small salad or dessert. Bring lawn chairs, if you have ones that are easy to transport. WFFA members from other chapters are welcome.

Eric Hippler, Forestry consultant with Wilbur-Ellis will join us for a short presentation and answer questions that you have regarding herbicides.

To reach the Andrews Tree Farm from the north or Longview go to I-5 exit 36 and go south on Old Pacific Highway towards Carrolls for about 1.5 miles, then left onto Rose Valley Road for 3.7 miles. Turn left at the Mark Andrews Tree Farm sign. From the south, take I-5 exit 32 then north on Old Pacific Highway past Carrolls and turn right on Rose Valley Road (address is 2336 Rose Valley Road). 


NEW MEMBER RATE - Our chapter continues to seek more members and we need the current members help.  With the reduced new member rate and the Cowlitz chapter paying $10, the cost for 2019 is only $35 for the first year.
