Finish Line Near for the New LISD Outdoor Learning Area
Did you know Lewisville ISD has 84 acres of land dedicated to environmental learning? In 1995, the U.S. Department of Education supplied LISD with the land, located off of State Highway 121 Business on the south side of Lewisville Lake, to use for outdoor learning. Every year, more than 10,000 students
visit the LISD Outdoor Learning Area (LISDOLA) to receive hands-on learning experiences about topics such as water conservation, animal tracks, soil and also enjoy the many nature trails the area has to offer. Soon, the LISDOLA learning experience will be enhanced.
In 2017, LISD voters passed a bond referendum that included a new structure for LISDOLA. Construction on the new structure has made great strides this spring, with the finish line becoming closer each day. The future learning facility will feature both outdoor and indoor spaces for students to get a unique, hands-on learning experience. The new learning center is on track to open this year.
