The Forestry Outreach Center

Berea College currently manages over 9,000 acres of forest land and offers both classes and outreach programs related to forestry.

The Forestry Outreach Center

The Berea College Forestry Outreach Center is a flexible space where visitors and the community can come together to learn about the Berea College Forest and the natural world that sustains us. Our goals include: 

Community Education

Using a model of community education, Center staff can tailor engaging activities to meet the needs of learners of all ages, including school and community groups.

Community Building

 Learning about forest lands, air, and water renews a sense of stewardship and reinvigorates a commitment to care for the earth.


Sharing a forest experience brings people together and builds lasting relationships that strengthen communities.
