Claytor Nature Study Center
In 1998, the College received a major gift from A. Boyd Claytor III when he donated his 470-acre farm nearby in Bedford County to establish the Claytor Nature Study Center. Located approximately 20 miles from campus, the facility has become an outdoor classroom and laboratory for the College and for Central Virginia.
The highlight of Lynchburg College's commitment to environmental education is the 7,700-sq.ft. A. Boyd Claytor III Education & Research Center. This facility is located on the northern side of the property, just off of Woods Road. It is built on a ridge at the edge of the upland forest, overlooking the wetlands and the Big Otter River.
