Woodlands Campus

Streams, meadows and winding woodland trails aren’t just window dressing. They’re here for you to enjoy and learn.

Keystone’s Woodlands nature area includes a large network of hiking trails leading to the College’s Sugar Shack, suspension bridge, vernal pool, biology pond, and more.

The Woodlands Campus is an extremely valuable educational resource for Keystone students, proving a perfect area for a variety of scientific and environmental studies. Few colleges in the nation offer students such a pristine natural environment for education and recreation.

Jennings Nature Preserve

Howard Jennings Nature Preserve

The College dedicated a portion of its beautiful 170 acre Woodlands Campus as a nature preserve, that will not be developed in any way, to honor the years of dedication of Professor Howard Jennings.



Sugar Shack

Maple Sugaring

Keystone College is very fortunate to have its own small maple sugaring operation that includes a sugar shack with a hobby-sized evaporator, and of course a sugarbush, where we have approximately 275 taps deployed.

Keystone College’s 170-acre Woodlands Campus features a stream, seven miles of hiking trails, and meadows and is home to a nature preserve and maple sugaring operation. The outdoor classrooms and field stations provide unparalleled opportunities for outdoor discovery and a wonderful learning atmosphere for our environmental education courses and workshops.
