The Duke Forest comprises over 7,000 acres of land in Durham, Orange, and Alamance counties and has been managed for teaching and research purposes since 1931. The mission of the Forest is to facilitate research that addresses fundamental and applied questions about forested and aquatic ecosystems and to aid in the instruction of students so they will become informed citizens and effective stewards of our natural resources.  In addition to supporting education at local universities and schools, the Forest participates in community outreach through tours and other events.
