Consisting of approximately 120 acres of mixed pines and hardwoods, the Maryville College woods are an integral part of the situational value of the College. The Woods contain a variety of habitats that include a low, dry ridge; riparian wetlands; second-growth forest; and mesic forest with old, large hardwoods. The Woods--especially the natural amphitheater--were used for Easter Sunrise Services, pageants, and weddings. Today, the Woods serve as an outdoor laboratory for the academic curriculum.
