XI. Education Opportunities

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.
