The Jim Wall Challenge Course, named for NC State College of Natural Resources graduate and founder of Challenge Design Innovations (CDI), was built in 2009 through the generous donation of equipment, materials and time of Jim Wall and the CDI team. The course is located six miles from Main Campus in Schenck Forest, a 245-acre plot managed by the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources for research and teaching.
