August 27 and 28

We will be closed for maintenance this coming weekend, August 27th and 28th. We just want to make sure that everything got through the earthquake all right, and to fix some items that got damaged. Thank you again for your patience! The weather this August has not been cooperative. We hope to have a great September and the activities for the rest of the fall will be posted soon.

Rain Closing

This morning we opened for our First Saturdays volunteer day. We painted benches, getting them ready for birds and clouds and flowers which we'll add later. Then the rains came! We closed when we got soaked, but we hope to see everyone tomorrow.

August 6 and 7

This coming weekend we'll be building model boats to sail in the river and we'll be collecting soil samples to turn into all-natural paint. The paint will then be used on paper or as slip on pottery. (Clay is available for small bowls and sculptures.) The forecast says it might rain, so check into the blog for closing in case of thunderstorms.

Dave Matthews Tickets

All you Dave Matthews/Tim Reynolds/Lewis and Clark Exploratory Center fans, as of today (August 5th) you have the opportunity to give to LCEC when you buy your tickets to the Matthews-Reynolds show at the nTelos Wireless Pavilion in Charlottesville on August 20, 2011. Just go to and buy your tickets. You'll be given a 14 digit number that you can then use on the website to designate funds to your favorite charity. Tell your friends to support us also! They'll be supporting environmental education, a new river center, and hands-on activities for kids. And as our visitors you can tell them all about it.
