Save Stadium Woods
Hidden behind Virginia Tech's Lane Stadium is an 11 acre tract of forest known as 'Stadium Woods'. This woodland is a rare fragment of old growth forest that supports white oaks over 300 hundred years old. Stadium Woods is a living ecosystem and wildlife habitat that provides vital ecological functions, aesthetic and social benefits, and is a migration sanctuary for bird species from South and Central America.
The Virginia Tech football program has proposed to clear a 3-5 acre portion of this old growth forest in order to build an indoor practice facility.
