Let the Transformation Begin!

Please pardon our dust these next couple of months!

River Legacy Living Science Center is moving forward with its $2.5 million capital campaign to transform the Center’s Exhibit Hall space with all new museum-quality exhibits and an interactive wall feature that will place our guests in a variety of environments and seasons. The renovation will also expand our classroom space and allow us to leave the exhibit hall open during Summer Classes, Field Investigations and other programs.

The Exhibit Hall will be closed beginning July 31 for the construction to begin for the renovation. 

We are so excited about this progress and can’t wait to share the outcome with our faithful donors,  supporters and guests who helped make it happen.

We are still just $200,000 shy of our $2.5 million goal. We will only complete what is funded. If  you would like to help us close the gap, please donate online here or mail a check to River Legacy Foundation, Attn:  Transformation,  703 NW Green Oaks Blvd., Arlington,  TX 76006.

Any amount is much appreciated, and we look forward to sharing your investment in environmental education with the public. If you would like more information about the Transformation campaign, please contact Fund Development Coordinator Becky Nussbaum at 817.860.6752, ext. 120.

Watch this video to know more about the renovation plans and the interactive wall feature.

Thank you for growing the next generation of environmental stewards through education, recreation  and conservation.
