The Outdoor Classroom
Only 12 miles south of Pittsburgh, The Outdoor Classroom (formerly the Regional Environmental Education Center) is nestled within the 475-acre Boyce Mayview Park in the Township of Upper St. Clair. The unique diversity of habitats found in the park offers visitors of all ages many ways to experience the connections between people and the environment.
Conceived to encourage hands-on learning about the environment, the Classroom focuses on outdoor experiential learning. Immediately accessible to the main facilities are a sloping meadow, a deciduous forest, and multiple trailheads offering access to more than 10 miles of natural surface hiking trails and the wondrous variety of both plant and animal life that abounds.
