WAYNESBORO—Waynesboro Area Senior High School National Honor Society students funded the purchase of several picnic tables recently installed on The Institute’s nature center property near Waynesboro.

The Institute purchased a 40-acre rural property in Washington Township with plans to create a nature education center and living classroom for both students and the greater Waynesboro community.

“We are grateful to the National Honor Society students for their generous funding of this addition to our nature center,” said Tracy Holliday, Institute executive director. 

“In addition to accommodating future visitors, the tables are already being used for stream-side projects like student watershed science studies,” Holliday said.

The tables are made with recycled plastic and designed to meet ADA guidelines and wheelchair use.

A nonprofit organization, The Institute provides programming in environmental education and cultural history for area school children, plus a variety of workshops, lectures, programs and annual community events for all ages. For more information, visit www.NatureAndCultureInstitute.org.
