On National Public Lands Day, Saturday September 22, 2018 Friends of DuPont Forest will launch the first ever DuPont Forest Festival, an event celebrating the adventure, wildness, and beauty of DuPont State Recreational Forest. More than 30 activities have been planned for the day including, mountain bike and hiking tours, wildlife lectures, yoga on Big Rock, stand-up paddle board demonstrations, and so much more. The full schedule and more information about the Festival is available at online.
Our number one goal for the Forest Festival is t teach the people to love the Forest. All of the activities are designed to educate attendees on how to be good stewards of the Forest and all of our public lands, says Sara Landry, executive director of Friends of DuPont Forest. The activities will weave in education about the pack it in, pack it out philosophy, waterfall safety, multi-use trail use, and conservation. The events will be led by expert volunteers and representatives from our partner conservation nonprofits including Conserving Carolina, Wild South, Muddy Sneakers, and MountainTrue.
