Tours and Activities


Please sign up for our email newsletter if you’d like to be notified about tours, volunteer events, and other activities in the Forest. 

The Office of the Duke Forest typically offers tours for the general public three to four times a year. The tours each focus on one aspect of the Forest: spring flora and fauna, research, geology, management, historical or other specific topics. Tours are lead by Duke Forest staff and accompanying experts. They are fun and educational for the whole family. Learn more about the Living Laboratory in your backyard. To see upcoming tours, please visit our Events Calendar.
