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.

There are no fees for any programs or to visit Clemmons Educational State forest
