This year's three-part series explores the topic of education reform and will start by creating a foundation of understanding around the science of learning and development research.  The second session will then focus on advocacy at the local and state levels, building up to the final session which will address policy change at the national level.  Join us for this dynamic series that will bring together the leading ideas and best practices in education reform from around the nation.

Join Justin Doyle, Community Conservation Manager for The James River Association, on Brown's Island for a one-hour hike around the riverfront. We will cross the Potterfield Memorial Bridge and explore the south bank of the river.  Justin will give LMR members an update on both the Riverfront Plan and the Regional Rivers Plan along the way.  For those interested in the complete river experience, there will be an option to paddle on the James following the tour. Rentals will be setup through Riverside Outfitters at a cost of $15 per person.
