The outdoor classroom at Alton's Rock Spring Park is now in use.  Groups of volunteers, mostly from Calvary Baptist Church and Alton Middle School, worked to construct the classroom over the past several months.  A Thursday morning dedication officially completed the project.

Rock Spring 2020 chairman Greg Gelzinnis tells The Big Z many hands helped build the classroom, and there were other entities that pitched in too.

Gelzinnis says this is another piece of the overall rebirth of Rock Spring Park, which has included a cleanup of the grounds, and another community project - the creation of a Bio Swale.  To learn more about the Rock Spring Park restoration effort, click here:
