Visit Our Interpretive Centers this Spring

Spring is in the air. Enjoy the fresh smells and sounds in Fernald Preserve’s forests, hike through Weldon Spring Site’s wildflower-filled prairies, and feast your eyes on the bluebird skies of the Western Slope at the Atomic Legacy Cabin.

If you need a history fix, tour the exhibits detailing two national-defense eras at the Weldon Spring Site Interpretive Center, learn about Philip S. Leahy’s secret mission at the Atomic Legacy Cabin (a project that changed the course of history worldwide more than 80 years ago), or discover the fascinating transformation of industrial lands to wild spaces at the Fernald Preserve Visitors Center.

Visit one of LM’s three interpretive and visitor centers this spring:


Fernald Preserve Visitors Center, near Hamilton, Ohio

Weldon Butterfly Catching 2016

Weldon Spring Site Interpretive Center’s Science and Nature Adventure, 2016

Earth Day, celebrated on April 22, raises awareness about environmental issues. For LM, it’s an opportunity to connect with communities near our three interceptive centers, share educational resources, and inspire the next generation of scientists.

Staff-led, engaging tours tell the story of each site’s past, present, and future. Our educational programs are thought-provoking and fun! Interact with exhibits, study historical objects, and ponder timeless photographs. You’ll experience U.S. history through the eyes of the people who lived and worked at each site, preserving their place in our nation’s story. You’ll also learn about the environmental remediation and beneficial reuse of the sites.
