The McDonald-Dunn Research Forest is owned and managed by Oregon State University and consists of 11,000 acres of mostly forested lands at the junction of the Willamette Valley and the eastern foothills of the coast range.  The forest features a variety of forest types and management themes (even-aged, two-storied, and uneven aged, as well as a number of stands of old growth) allow for side-by-side comparisons of forest management practices.  The location provides a rare opportunity to contrast forest management approaches with an eye toward how avian communities use the resulting habitat features.
