Welcome To The Joe R. Adair Outdoor Education Center

The purpose of the Joe R. Adair Outdoor Education Center is to serve as a learning center for children and adults in Laurens County. The property, given to the Soil Conservation District in 1992 as a gift by retired Soil Conservation Service employee Joe Adair, also includes an office and classroom building,  nature trails, and a picnic area. Instruction at the center focuses on the natural sciences and soil and water conservation. The center opened on March 22, 1996.  Since that time, thousands of students and their teachers have experienced "hands on" education at the center.
