Duke Students


The Duke Forest is an outdoor classroom and living laboratory for you to utilize. How will you use the Duke Forest to enrich your academic, professional, & personal pursuits while at Duke University?

  • Participate in ongoing research
  • Enroll in classes that use the Forest
  • Initiate your own research (think Master’s Projects)
  • Create an independent study
  • Develop environmental education opportunities
  • Apply for assistantships or work study positions
  • Or just simply to hike the trails, volunteer with Duke Forest on trail maintenance days, or attend Duke Forest events!
