Learning Center

National forests are the ultimate "outdoor classroom," with natural processes and human activities interacting in all sorts of interesting ways.

 Visitor Centers

There are six visitor centers on the forest; one at each  District Office and one at the  Forest Supervisor's Office.  You will find helpful employees to answer your questions, give you directions, share forest information and issue permits for firewood and other forest products.  Each visitor center has cultural and natural history displays, recreational opportunity guides and tourist information.  All of the offices are open Monday through Friday and closed on weekends and Federal holidays.
