School in the Woods

The Wausau School Forest provides a special learning experience for students in the Wausau School District. Located 11 miles southwest of the city on the banks of the Wisconsin River, the School Forest has been a part of the District's curriculum since 1942. The forest of pine and hardwoods covering over 400 acres becomes a classroom unlike any other. Here students learn about nature, they learn about working together, and they learn there is a little more inside of themselves than they thought possible.
