Say Hello to the New Children’s House!


What a thrill to welcome back the Children’s House kids in their brand new classroom!

A *tremendous* amount of NRGLC family and friends (volunteer) labor and very generous donations from family, friends, and supporters went into making this expansion a reality. Thank you does not do our gratitude justice. We couldn’t be happier about how it’s shaping up and very much look forward to bringing even more families into our community!

2016’s looking pretty good for NRGLC so far! : )

P.S. Keep a lookout for an Open House announcement coming soon – we can’t wait to show off our new space!

Because learning at the NRGLC goes beyond our walls and extends into the world around us, we love that we get to call the New River Gorge part of our classroom. The combination of beauty, adventure, natural history and social history makes the New River Gorge a living library of so much information and how the different things we encounter and study are connected.
