Facility Rentals


With a commitment to sustainable design, River Legacy Living Science Center is a masterpiece of architecture, rising dramatically as its wing-shaped roof soars above the surrounding forest and providing a natural backdrop for your one-of-a-kind event or special occasion. Designed by renowned architecture firm, Jones Studio, the limestone and granite building features three enormous red oak trees as structural support for the roof, literally bringing the outside in and providing a seamless connection to the surrounding woodlands. River Legacy Living Science Center is an excellent indoor/outdoor site for the couple wanting a nontraditional and unique venue.
