Wausau School Forest
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 that there is a little more inside of themselves than they thought possible.

"That which can be best learned inside the classroom should be learned there; and that which can be best learned through direct experience outside the classroom, in contact with native materials and life situations, should there be learned." L.B Sharp
