i'm pretty sure these are hazelnuts. i find them on the ground around here all the time. they grow along lots of nearby jogging paths. according to wikipedia, oregon produces most of the hazelnuts grown in the united states:

In the United States, hazelnut production is concentrated in two states, Oregon and Washington; however, they are also grown extensively just to the north, in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, Canada. In 1996 the in-shell production in Oregon was about 19,900 tons (18,000 tonnes) compared to 100 tons (91 tonnes) in Washington.
