Giving Tuesday 2016

November 29, 2016 | Posted in Uncategorized | By

For Giving Tuesday this year, we’re hoping that you’ll learn more about the Lewis & Clark Exploratory Center and our programs–we bring the joys of exploration to children and families throughout Virginia, some of them underserved and all of them ready to explore, learn, and create. We bring nature closer…consider making a gift today! You can also join our mailing list or find out more about our programs by emailing

We’re still on for today (October 8) , but we’ll have small model boats to make inside rather than big ones to ride in the Rivanna River. Come 10 to 4… there’s plenty of art to make and see. We’re moving from cocoon to butterfly in a variety of fun projects!
