The interior of the Eschweiler administration building has taken a step toward habitability, the University Lab School has held a week of programming, and the 67-acre forest controlled by the Forest Exploration Center has already been used as a learning environment.
Despite the recent departure of executive director John Gee, the refusal of FEC officials to disclose the state of their fundraising and newly arising questions about highway construction materials stored on the forest property (see related story), some of the FEC's dreams have begun to come true.
For the fourth time, a group of volunteers gathered Saturday at the Eschweiler administration building and worked to clean it up. With the hallways and rooms lit by utility lights, some of the past glory of the building is becoming apparent. Without trash, broken glass, pieces of broken plaster and layers of dust as distractions, a visitor can take in the order of the place — the layout, the straight sturdy walls, the way it might have been.
A fifth cleanup session will be held Aug. 30.
