2008 Centennial - Home
The Umpqua National Forest celebrated 100 years of caring for the land and serving people in 2008. As part of our the celebration, we developed this area of our forest web site to include our history, as we know it, complete with historic photographs. You can also find out about the past celebrations we held and take a fun Forest Ranger Exam from 1908. We have reason to celebrate! Today, the cleanest water comes from our forest. We protect resources and people from wildfires. Our forest provides habitat for at least 18 fish species, 66 mammal species, 236 bird species, and 27 reptile and amphibian species. We manage 72,043 acres of wilderness, 54 developed campgrounds, 350 miles of all-season trails, and 1,150 miles of roads maintained for car travel.
