Pisgah Forest Institute
The Pisgah Forest Institute (PFI) is a cooperative effort of Brevard College, the USDA Forest Service, and the Cradle of Forestry in America Interpretive Association. Funded through congress and other awards, PFI is an integral part of the Appalachian Center for Environmental Education (ACEE) at Brevard College and is a program in the Education and Research Consortium of the Western Carolinas.
The Institute’s focus is science-based environmental education and its goal is to create, develop, and assist K-12 educators in implementing environmental science programs using the forest as a laboratory. The Institute offers workshops and short courses, taught both in the summer and throughout the academic year and has a regional and national reputation for educational excellence.
