WHAS helps make Wake Robin Outdoor Learning Center accessible

WHAS Education Chair Darrel Whipple presents WHAS's donation for Wake Robin Learning Center to instructor John Gross, representing Longview School District at the site, on Thursday, October 13th, as three fifth graders share the happy moment

At Wake Robin Learning Center along Coal Creek Willapa Hills Audubon members interpreted bird and mammal features to Longview fifth graders during Forestry Days, October 12-13. WHAS has participated in this program for many years.

This year WHAS further benefitted the Wake Robin program by donating $600 to help cover transportation of more than 450 students to the site. The forested acreage and building were donated to the Longview School District for an outdoor learning center by the late Joe and Eleanor Lammi, former WHAS directors and longtime members.
