The 4th-graders of D.F. Walker Elementary School have taken on the admirable goal of building an outdoor classroom, complete with seating areas, habitats, and tails. The students replanted the wetland of the area, along with 150 trees! They also put up signs for the trails and are currently working on getting outdoor seating.

Continuous impact/Community engagement:

This outdoor classroom will be invaluable in educating the students of D.F. Walker Elementary School in all areas for many years to come.
