Over 100 years ago, the building now known as the Headwaters Education Center (HEC) served as an engine house to store the locomotives that hauled logs to the lumber mill at Falk. In 2008, the engine house was dismantled piece by piece and moved from its original location across the South Fork Elk River to it's new location along the Elk River Trail.
Come to the HEC and join us for the Headwaters Forest Reserve 2013 Lecture Series!
The HEC is open every Sunday from 12 to 3pm, June - August. Join us for fun activities that may include owl pellet dissection, nature journaling and making salmon prints with paint and rice paper. Or simply wander the train barn at your own pace and enjoy the interpretive displays that describe Headwaters Forest Reserve ecology and history.
The Headwaters Education Center is located approximately 0.5 miles from the Elk River Trailhead in Eureka.
