The athletic dept. is evidently looking at the woods between Lane and the Center Street area as a potential site for a new
indoor practice facility for Football. There are some 300+ year old oaks and other large trees in this tract. If you look at an aerial of the VT Campus and Blacksburg it is one of the last sizeable patches of woods. A classic stand-off between development and conservation. I don't think the "Save Stadium Woods" crowd is anti-football/athletics...they just do not want those woods taken out.
