Program Information: Site features

Site features add uniqueness and character to a school forest. Even a few key features can make the site more usable, comfortable, and welcoming. Features can be designed as simple or elaborate as you desire and made from materials ranging from stumps and logs to finely crafted, pre-made purchased items.

Below is a sample of features in School Forests around the state. Click on the photos to see the School Forest associated with each feature.  If you have questions about a specific feature or want to connect to the local School Forest coordinator, contact the School Forest staff.
