BLACKSBURG, Va. -

A Virginia Tech professor and a Blacksburg organization are offering you a free guided tour of Stadium Woods Wednesday.

Doctor Jeff Kirwan and the Southside Garden Club invite you to meet at the Cranwell International Cetner parking lot at 10:00 a.m.

They'll then lead you through Stadium Woods which is a patch of old-growth forest.

That means it was here when the European settlers first came to America.

Some experts think only one percent of all old-growth forests remain.
