Education at Natural Bridge

The Natural Bridge property is managed by the Virginia Conservation Legacy Fund, a nonprofit devoted to conservation, education, and recreation. Natural Bridge hosts 150,000 visitors per year and is expected to host over 1 million per year in the future. Education is a primary goal at Natural Bridge focusing on bridge history, caverns, archaeology, geology, and ecology. The Monacan Indian Living History outdoor museum is continuing to develop and offers Virginia SOL compliant programs for students.

In 2014 and 2015, plans are underway to open new exhibits and develop a 10,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art activity center to enhance the visitor experience and tell more of the story regarding Natural Bridge and the surrounding area. The Rockbridge Center will start to offer hands-on workshops on crafts and art techniques. A series of seminars on locally important topics will begin this summer at the Natural Bridge Park and Historic Hotel. We invite you to experience the range of educational and recreational opportunities while relaxing here with your fellow coworkers, family and friends of all ages.
