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.

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 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 available for a program.  We recommend that you leave additional time for Q & A. 


School Programs:

Water safety programs most frequently requested for school programs, however we can typically cover other lake-related subjects such as fish/fisheries management, park/wildlife/forestry management, environmental issues, hydropower, and careers with the Corps of Engineers.  Please contact the lake office to discuss program possibilities.
