The Wildwood Outdoor Classroom
The Classroom in Use

Finally finished by the hard work of so many volunteers from the Radford community and neighboring communities, the classroom is now being used by students from Radford High School. 

This, we hope, is not the last chapter of the classroom story, but just the end of Chapter 1.  Pathways is working to get the building wired for lights and full electricity, and to fund storage lockers for educational equipment.  We hope that Radford High School, and other Radford city schools will use the classroom on a regular basis.  Radford University classes are welcome here as well, and the classroom is also available to other organizations for environmental education.  And when the classroom is not in use, members of the community are welcome to stop here to study the Wildwood ecosystem and to meditate on what a community can build.

Getting the data down for the record.   OK, what do we have here?

So what can we conclude?   Everyone hard at work.
