Note: All educational group visits must be scheduled in advance.
The Virginia Department of Forestry invites all educators to make use of this unique and valuable resource. Teachers and group leaders are welcome to schedule educational trips to the New Kent Forestry Center. Trips can be “on your own” with the teacher conducting his own class using our 850-acre outdoor classroom or, specific, SOL-correlated lessons can be taught by VDOF staff. Topics can be adapted to suit any age group and can be taught in an outdoor setting where students can learn by doing, feeling, seeing, hearing, and smelling. Many of these can be taught through engaging Project Learning Tree www.plt.org activities.
All educational group visits must be scheduled in advance.
Located on Route 60 in Providence Forge, the center is 25 miles east of downtown Richmond and 25 miles west of Williamsburg:
