The diverse and unique natural resources on Jocassee
Gorges provide an exceptional opportunity for "outdoor
classroom" education. SCDNR will promote education opportunities on
Jocassee Gorges property. Natural resource demonstration projects will be
considered and implemented. Education opportunities could include
demonstrations of forest management practices, wildlife management
practices, and many more. Jocassee Gorges property will serve as a site
for numerous outdoor workshops.
A specific example of an education opportunity is
providing visitors with interpretive information on forest management.
Signs should identify a variety of timber stand types and ages showing
results of past management practices. These stands could be used for
information and education demonstrations and in-house biological studies.
Construction of a visitors center for Jocassee Gorges
will be considered as funding allows.
