Education At Clemmons Educational State Forest

North Carolina's system of Educational State Forests has been developed for use as a living outdoor class room.

Their purpose is to teach children and adults about the complex, interdependent ecosystems which make up a forest and that can be managed for a multitude of uses.

Ranger conducted classes are available to groups of ten or more visiting the Forest. These classes have been designed to meet various science and social studies curriculum guidelines.

Special study sites are available to assist teachers or other group leaders in using the forest as an outdoor classroom.


Fees and Permits

Currently, there are no fees associated with use of any Educational State Forest. Permits are required for certain activities and special events. For more information about permitting requirements at Clemmons ESF, contact the Forest’s office.
