Wild and Wet In the Watershed: Lakeside Learning

block Virginia Living Museum

A key environmental feature at the Virginia Living Museum is a freshwater lake. Originating as urban runoff, the lake water empties into the lower James River. This project would enable the museum to enhance its interpretation of and education about the Bay watershed through the creation of a new outdoor interpretive area with amphitheater-style seating with an adjacent canoe landing/teaching platform that will provide direct access to the lake. The museum’s education department will develop and deliver environmental programs for students and the general public, plus train volunteers in hands-on outdoor explorations of lake ecology. The canoe landing will provide access to the lake, the interpretive area will reclaim a currently unused area in an environmentally sensitive way and the related programming will encourage conservation stewardship of the Bay’s resources.

Amount Funded: $105,442.00

Start Date: 08/25/2006
