There are no size, acreage, or tree requirements to be in the School Forest Program. The land needs to match the teaching goals of your school – that may mean prairie, forest, wetland, the woodlot down the street, or your schoolyard. Any natural space can be used as an outdoor classroom.
Whether your district owns land or you need to find land, there are a few things to consider.
The DNR provides a variety of support for managing your land.
