December 6, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Forest Conservation Tour
by Cola City Homeschoolers
Wednesday, Dec 6 10-noon
Teens/tweens — $5/family

Note: This is a Cola City event as part of our Green Steps Environmental Education initiatives. Contact [email protected] with questions. Register below.

Come for this ranger-led lesson on forest conservation, led by Ranger Beth Foley. Meet at Harbison State Forest Education Center 5500 Broad River Road Columbia, SC 29212. Parking is free for this event.

The program is geared for 6th grade and up level, but all ages are welcome to participate. Families with younger siblings can listen in and tag along or stroll the path at your own pace.

Program: Survival in the Forest
Students will learn how plants and animals survive in the forest. They will participate in an activity called “Every Tree for Itself” where they will become trees that must collect the basic resources needed to survive. Students will also become deer that need to acquire the four habitat components needed in a forest ecosystem.

Location Street Address: 5600 Broad River Road 

Turn in at the sign for Harbison State Forest, not the SC Forestry Commission headquarters which is next door at 5500 Broad River Road. To reach the Environmental Education Center, continue past the first parking lot and bear left through the wooden gate onto a gravel road. Take the first right (at the closed metal gate) onto another gravel road. The Education Center is a log cabin building at the top of the hill on the left. There is ample parking directly in front of the Education Center.

Look for Kim to greet you. Call or text if you get lost along the way 803-307-4880 so we can help you catch up to the group.
