Hartwell Lake Educational Programs

The following programs are offered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Hartwell Lake Office as part of our ongoing effort to improve understanding and increase awareness relative to the many aspects of Hartwell Lake. Programs are presented by Hartwell Lake park rangers or managers at the Hartwell Lake Office auditorium, or off-site at your meeting or school location.


Powerplant Tours:

There are no public tours of the dam and powerplant at this time.  Limited group tours may be arranged in advance for educational/school groups only.  Tour size is limited. 


Water Safety Programs:

Water safety programs are available upon request and are presented at the Hartwell Lake Office or at your location around the Hartwell Lake area. Program length varies from 10 minutes to 90 minutes depending upon your groups needs.  Programs can be presented to adults or children.  Water safety programs are a good idea for companies needing a safety program.


Presentations for Civic and Special Interest Groups:

Hartwell Dam & Lake staff are available to present programs to civic and special interest groups in the Hartwell Lake area.  Let us know what type of program your organization is interested in and the length of time your group has.  We recommend that you leave additional time for questions and answers. 


School Programs:

Water safety programs are the most popular request we get for school programs, however we can typically cover other lake related subjects such as fish/fisheries management, environmental issues, hydropower, careers, and park, wildlife and forestry management.  Please contact the lake office to discuss program possibilities.

For more information about programs and tours, please contact Park Ranger Scott Lusk at the Hartwell Project Office at 888-893-0678, ext. 305.
