Due to a lapse in federal funding, this USDA website will not be actively updated. Once funding has been reestablished, online operations will continue. On-going operational updates will be posted here (https://www.fs.fed.us/shutdown) as we are able to provide them.


Outdoor Learning

Choose from the following to find a site:


The forest is a great place to learn about local history and nature. We have many interpretive areas with signs explaining historic or natural features in the forest such as a rifle pit for soldiers or squirrel "middens" along the nature trail. There are also two historic visitor centers on the forest which are "must visit" sites.
