School Forest

Welcome!  The Rahr Memorial School Forest is a place of learning for students in the Manitowoc Public School District. Located along the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan, the School Forest has been an outdoor education facility for over fifty years.  Within the nearly 300 acres are mixed forests, stands of pine, sand dunes, fields, a swamp, and a pond; all of which offer a unique learning environment.  The School Forest averages around 9,000 visitors annually.
Students attend classes at the School Forest starting when they are in 4-year-old kindergarten and continue throughout their school careers. 


The Rahr Memorial School Forest connects people and nature through exploration, wonder and questioning to promote a sustainable future.
