  • A quick but powerful storm hit Irvine's outdoor classroom yesterday, knocking over this tree and taking out a fence. We hope to turn this root system into another part of the natural play space!
  • Students at Irvine found an injured #boxturtle. Her left front limb was missing and her shell was bloody. Our staff bundled her up and brought her to #friskys #wildlife sanctuary for recovery. We hope to #release her at Irvine when she mends!
