ROLAND T. STERN LEARNING CENTER
AT THE AUSTIN CARY FOREST
Visit the Austin Cary Forest Campus
The Forest Campus houses several enriching meeting, conference, and event spaces, including the 7,800sqft Stern Learning Center. This beautiful facility was generously endowed by the Roland T. Stern family in 2018, with funds supporting the upkeep of the facility as well as scholarships for undergraduate students.
It is the Stern family's intent that this "gift will open Austin Cary Forest’s educational opportunities to everyone who has a desire to experience “the woods” in an area preserved for future generations." (UF/IFAS Blogs)
