The mission of the Elon University Forest is to provide a protected natural area to serve primarily as a teaching resource and research site and secondarily as a service learning site and quiet place for reflection and observation.

“Elon” is Hebrew for “oak.”  It is fitting, then, that the hardwood forests and other ecosystems of Elon University Forest represent the spirit, strength, and sustainability of Elon University. The Forest symbolizes a permanence that exists even while the University and the larger world change rapidly, as well as the notion that nature itself is a central part of higher education.
