West Virginia Outdoor Learning Lab

Welcome to the West Virginia Outdoor Learning Lab website! You’ll find information to take your Environmental Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (E-STEM) knowledge to the next level!

The goal of the WVOLL is to give you a sound appreciation of West Virginia’s water resources, the need to use them wisely, and to pass on the information to others in your life. Through the program, you’ll learn about nature and receive hands-on training by taking measurements using modern technology, making observations, and analyzing and recording data, just like a scientist!

Whether its learning about the benefits of the forest while zipping from platform to platform on the canopy tour, using technology to test water quality or identifying plants and animals using your smartphone on the wetland boardwalk, this program has something for everyone.
