The Spring Creek Project offers residencies and programs at two locations in Oregon—the Shotpouch Cabin in the Oregon Coast Range and H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest in the western Cascade Range.

We have held field symposia and gatherings in iconic Pacific Northwest landscapes, including Mount St. Helens, the Columbia River Gorge, and the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest. We also host a number of campus and community programs in Corvallis and at Oregon State University.


Shotpouch Cabin in the Oregon Coast Range

We host residencies and other gatherings at this cabin in the woods, including collaborative retreats, graduate student research and writing retreats, the Trillium Project, and writing workshops.




Long-term Ecological Reflections in the western Cascade Range

At the Andrews Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) site scientists conduct research projects designed to continue gathering data and insights for hundreds of years. Field symposia and writers gatherings are also held here along with the Writers-in-Residence Programs.



Campus and Community Programs in Corvallis

We host public events in Corvallis throughout the year, as well as the Campus Creature Census to keep an inventory of our observations and encounters with the other-than-human species that live here on campus.
