In 1933, Dr. George Aull sent a proposal for Fant’s Grove Community Development Project to Washington. He proposed that the government purchase 8,500 acres of worn out farmland in an effort to improve economic conditions. This vision resulted in the beautiful Clemson Experimental Forest (CEF) and located within CEF is a path of land known as the Aull Natural Area. There is also a 1 mile looped trail where you can witness a virgin forest with towering oaks, beech and poplar along a fine small bubbling creek.
