Custom Trips at Rice Rivers Center 

The VCU Outdoor Adventure Program is partnering with the VCU Rice Rivers Center to offer custom group trips at the 500-acre facility along the lower James.  With direct access to the James River, a boat launch for canoes to access the tidal creek, and the recent opening of the Inger Rice Lodge that can sleep up to 22 people, the Rice Rivers Center is a perfect location.  Contact outdoors@vcu.edu for more information.
