Rock Garden, Charlottesville Offices

The Educational Rock and Mineral Garden was designed to display a portion of Virginia’s geological variety. The educational display will contribute to the understanding of the geology and rock types found throughout the Commonwealth. The idea for the garden came from a casual remark; that remark has grown to a 43,312-pound reality. The garden is located at the offices of the Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy in the Fontaine Research Park, Charlottesville. The garden is open to the public.
