(CORVALLIS, Ore.) - An exciting new map brings information to your fingertips. Now the public can easily explore Oregon’s forests, farms, history, public gardens and more this summer through an online map assembled by Oregon State University.

From the Visitors Center at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport to the Summer Farm Festival and Annual Field Day in Ontario, there are multiple opportunities to learn about Oregon’s natural heritage.

OSU is one of only two U.S. universities designated a land-, sea-, space- and sun-grant institution. OSU is also Oregon’s only university to hold both the Carnegie Foundation’s top designation for research institutions and its prestigious Community Engagement classification.

Its approximately 30,000 students come from all 50 states and more than 109 nations. OSU programs touch every county within Oregon, and its faculty teach and conduct research on issues of national and global importance.

The OSU public gardens map includes updated descriptions of events and self-guided tours across the state.

Among the entries are demonstration gardens created and tended by volunteers in the Cooperative Extension’s Master Gardener program, the Fort Yamhill summer archaeology field school, the annual Blueberry Field Day in Aurora and dinners inspired by local food crops in Astoria and Hermiston.

Visitors to the Cooper’s Ferry archaeology dig along the Lower Salmon River in Idaho can learn about artifacts left by ancient Americans at the end of the last ice age.
