Eden Hall Campus EHC Summer Series

Venue Information

The Hilda M. Willis Amphitheater

Hilda M. Willis Amphitheater

The Hilda M. Willis Amphitheater is a unique performance space at Eden Hall Campus that provides a scenic and relaxed setting for campus and community events. Carved into the natural landscape, the amphitheater offers pastoral southern views overlooking the adjacent orchard, field, and the rolling terrain of the North Hills.

As a performance space, the Willis Amphitheater utilizes the natural grade of the land for clear acoustics and direct audience sightlines. In addition to its public function, the amphitheater is a key component of the sustainable and ecological functions of the campus. The design and layout make it an artery through which constructed wetlands can discharge excess water for collection in a pond below the amphitheater's base. This pond is used as an irrigation source in drought conditions, regulates storm water discharge into Glade Run, and provides a wetland amenity to campus trail users.

Eden Hall Campus

Eden Hall Campus Field Labs

Chatham's Eden Hall Campus is way more than a 388-acre plot of land. It's the embodiment of a commitment Chatham makes everyday to support sustainability and environmental education. In fact, it is home to Chatham's Falk School of Sustainability & Environment and functions as a living and learning laboratory, where the campus just doesn't house classrooms, but becomes the classroom. It's where a blend of knowledge, experience, and creativity is always working, persistently developing, and constantly improving. It's the first in the world of its kind. And it's where all efforts are focused on attaining the greatest social, economic, and environmental impact through greatly limiting our ecological impact. Learn more about Eden Hall Campus »
