Learning Opportunities in Forest Park


A connection to nature is fundamental to human health, in terms of intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual and physical well-being. Learning opportunities through Forest Park Forever uniquely connect residents of all ages and backgrounds with the best “wild” space in metropolitan St. Louis. 

We invite educators, community groups, parents and all to treat Forest Park as an outdoor learning lab where people across our region can explore beautiful natural landscapes. Whether you join one of our programs or embark on your own adventure, we would love to hear about and support your learning in the Park.


Do you work with youth in the St. Louis area? Our Voyage of Learning Programs help you transform Forest Park into the best outdoor classroom in the region.


Just what does it take to care for a 1,300-acre urban park? Through our innovative Nature Works program, paid teen interns find out each summer as they work alongside our staff in the Park’s Nature Reserve. 

Seasonal Programs for the General Public

Whether spying migratory birds, touring a prairie or learning about our recent improvements, participants of our tours and classes learn about the past, present and future of Forest Park.
