Coming Soon: Research Labs, Library and Offices

November 25, 2015

Following closely on the heels of the overnight lodge at the VCU Rice Rivers Center, the critically needed Research Laboratory Building is in its final phase of fundraising. The hope is that once construction of the overnight facility is complete, work can begin on this last segment of the planned infrastructure necessary to attain the visionary goal set upon receipt of the property back in 2000 – that of being the go-to place for river science and water issues on the east coast. This research building will be set on the eastern edge of the bluff overlooking the wetland restoration site, across from the existing Education Building. Plans are being considered carefully to accommodate fully the growing needs of the environmental scientists at VCU, as well as those who collaborate with the university.

Please consider helping us to close the gap: We have raised approximately $4M towards the $6.7M needed to break ground for this exciting new resource for Virginia, the region and the study of rivers and water resource issues. Visit us at: to be part of this impactful project.
