Outdoor Education Center

What is the OEC?

The West Salem Outdoor Education Center, also known as the OEC or School Forest, is settled on an area over 130 acres in size about 20 miles east of West Salem, near Sparta, WI. The OEC was originally established in 1949 and became school district property in 1978. This area allows our students, staff and community members to enjoy educational and enriching opportunities in an outdoor environment. Today, almost seventy five years later, we are proud to say that our community members, administrators, educators, and coordinators have developed and preserved this space for students and intend to do so for many years to come.
