The Daniel Boone National Forest serves as an outdoor classroom for young and old. Many come here to learn about the forest and its natural resources, including soil, water and wildlife. Our national forest lands - America’s Great Outdoors - play a vital role in all of our lives.

Due to limited staffing we do not generally provide guided programs. However, we invite teachers and other outdoor educators to use the forest as teaching forum to enhance awareness about Kentucky’s natural resources. The Kentucky Department of Natural Resources and other providers offer packaged curriculums, lessons or guided programs. Following are few resource links that may help you find educational materials or guided programs.
