OWLZ is at Hilltop!

OWLZ is Hilltop's very own Outdoor Wilderness Learning Zone. James McManus, a Hilltop alum & Eagle Scout, dedicated his Eagle Scout project to the betterment of Hilltop School. His project created a wood-chipped trail from the Steven Crowe Garden to a series of outdoor classrooms, where students and teachers are able to utilize the vast unused outdoor space to enhance their curricular experiences. McManus worked in conjunction with HELP to make the trails and learning zones come to life.

Take some time to visit the OWLZ website below to learn more about the project and to watch videos of its on-going creation
