A diverse class of children look through microscopes on a table set up outside in a forest

The refuge does not have an active environmental education program, but tries where possible to accommodate local students and teachers hoping to connect their studies with the refuge environment. Examples include biology students from the State University of New York (Orange) who come to the refuge to participate in activities such as vernal pool monitoring and wildlife observation, and High Point High School science club students who visit the refuge once a month to participate in various field projects.
