Making an Impact: Rice Rivers Center

Through its charitable foundation, Dominion Energy recently gave an environmental grant to Virginia Commonwealth University’s Rice Rivers Center in Charles City, Va. This grant is being used to restore a pier which will allow for the development of new educational programs. 

Deputy Director of the Rice Rivers Center, Edward Crawford, explains that several new educational opportunities will arise thanks to Dominion’s grant, these opportunities allow for students to have safe and secure access to resources that will enhance their knowledge about the environment.

Crawford says the grant will help get students out to the Rice Rivers Center to show that it is “a great place to work, build skills and gain empowerment for exploring and having a better understanding of the environment.”
