Reserve a Traveling Trunk
If you would like to schedule a trunk rental, please complete a Trunk Request Form at least two weeks in advance of your desired Traveling Trunk reservation date. You must submit a separate Trunk Request Form for each trunk you would like to reserve. An OHS staff member will respond to your request within 2 to 5 business days. Please note that your trunk rental is not confirmed until you hear from an OHS staff member and have received a confirmation email. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 503.306.5290.
Please note that the Lewis & Clark and Oregon Trail trunks are in the process of being updated and will not be available to rent until those updates are complete.
