Tuttle Educational State Forest
Tuttle is a 290-acre forestland managed by the N.C. Division of Forest Resources and the Tuttle Forest Foundation and includes a variety of pines and hardwoods, plus a rolling terrain accessible by a series of trails accented with exhibits and displays which explain the ecology of the forest. Forest rangers conduct classes and guide tours especially created for schoolchildren to learn more about soil, water, wildlife, timber and forest management. Exhibits, the "talking tree" trail, and forest management demonstration areas help visitors learn more about the forest. Public restrooms and a covered picnic shelter are available by reservation.
