MONTGOMERY— Students in Limestone County will soon have a new space to learn about the outdoors with the help of a $76,307 Appalachian Regional Commission grant announced by Gov. Robert Bentley.
The Athens-Limestone Public Library will use the grant to help convert an unused piece of land adjacent to the library into an outdoor education facility. Students from area schools and home school groups will use the site to teach the Alabama Wildlife Federation’s Outdoor Classroom curriculum and for activities designed to teach science, technology and math concepts.
