On Thursday, April 19, Weatherly Heights Elementary in Huntsville built a new outdoor classroom.  The entire school pitched in, including students, staff, parents, grandparents and other volunteers.  They built several stations, including raised beds for vegetables and herbs, a turtle and toad habitat, a sensory garden, a butterfly garden, weather station, an Alabama native wildflower garden and a nature trail to connect all of the stops.  This was done in partnership with the Alabama Outdoor Classroom Program, through the Alabama Wildlife Federation.  Thank you to Sue Zupko, one of the science teachers at Weatherly, for sending in these photos!
