Outreach and Education

For the public, the Cloquet Forestry Center offers programs on forest ecosystems and natural resource management. These are geared toward private woodland owners and are taught by the University of Minnesota Extension office.

We also serve as a living laboratory for University of Minnesota students who study natural resources. Students can practice, observe and research forest management, wildlife, and a vast boreal ecosystem.
