Willow Hill Outdoor Center to provide free internet to students with limited or no access

Community

One local facility hopes to close the digital divide in rural Bulloch County during the pandemic.
Friday, the Bulloch County Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for
the Willow Hill COVID-safe Outdoor Learning Center in Portal.

The plan is to expand internet access and improve educational opportunities for children in
the area who have fallen behind during the COVID-19 pandemic and whose families have limited or no access to broadband internet services or digital devices.

The Outdoor Learning Center will be equipped with tables, electricity, fans, and water and will
be used according to CDC guidelines.

The outdoor learning center was paid for through a two year grant funded by the Institute for Museums and Library Sciences.
