Welcome Association of Consulting Foresters

June 8-14, 2023

We are thrilled to welcome the attendees of the Association of Consulting Foresters Conference and their families to the Eugene-Springfield region of Lane County. About 100 miles south of Portland in the lush and beautiful Willamette Valley, this area is conveniently located within about an hours drive of the Oregon coast, and the Cascade mountains, with two rivers, the majestic McKenzie and Willamette, running through it. We boast many accessible waterfalls, hiking trails and the famous Oregon sand dunes where you can try sand boarding, dune buggies and sand castle building. 

Eugene is ranked as one of the safest cities in Oregon. It is a great place to bring the family with opportunities for all ages and interests. 

Getting to Eugene is easy and convenient with 13 direct flights arriving daily to the Eugene Airport. Eugene Airport is just 15 minutes from downtown Eugene and the Graduate Hotel. 

Plan your adventure now! Arrive early and stay a few days after the conference to explore the area.
