National Public Lands Day

28 Sep 2013

At the Cradle of Forestry, we celebrate our national forests, conservation, and the outdoors on this special day. Visitors can enjoy guided walks, gardening for biodiversity, and service projects -- as well as free admission to the historic trails and the Forest Discovery Center! If you are a group leader interested in service, find out how your group can “lend a hand, care for the land” at the Cradle of Forestry on NPLD by calling (828) 877-3130.

The Cradle of Forestry is located at 11250 Pisgah Highway, in Pisgah National Forest on NC Hwy 276. It lies 14 miles north of Brevard, NC and four miles south of the Blue Ridge Parkway at MP 412. Call 828-877-3130 or visit for more information.
