The Forest Resource Education Center (FREC) features forestry exhibits, information on forest stewardship, sustainable forests, and the benefits of trees. The FREC offers interpretive programs free of charge to schools, youth organizations, and civic groups. Programs focus on developing students’ understanding of forest habitats and forestry practices through hands-on learning. The center staff leads groups on short hikes along a “Learning Trail” where they visit learning stations with informational kiosks. Interested parties should call to schedule an educational hike.
