River Legacy Living Science Center

Description: River Legacy Foundation, a nonprofit 501 (c)(3), was formed as a unique public/private partnership with the City of Arlington Parks and Recreation Department in 1988. River Legacy Living Science Center opened to the public in 1996 featuring interactive exhibits, aquariums and terrariums with native animals, environmental education programs, a gift shop and nature trails. Our key initiative is to educate the next generation of environmental stewards using the resources of River Legacy Park and River Legacy Living Science Center. Starting with children as young as 3 years old, our environmental education programs expose children to the wonders of nature and their place in it. Through education, we preserve the Trinity River and its unique eco-system.
