VCU Rice Rivers Center is a laboratory — a big, outdoor living laboratory. Discovering the natural world happens outside, not in the classroom, and the natural resources of the center are its educational tools to be explored.
Working with primary and secondary schools, we engage students of all levels. The center is a great destination for field trips, teacher workshops and special offerings open to all. Our experts also go off-site to share their knowledge at public events and activities.
By involving students of all ages directly in the investigation of their natural world, they become better stewards of the resources upon which we all depend.
