On the Potomac Palisades in north Arlington, Potomac Overlook offers 70 acres of peaceful woodland, trails, educational gardens, a small picnic area and a Nature Center. The Nature Center features brand new exhibits called the "Energerium", offering visitors a fun and accessible way to learn energy basics and ways they can help create sustainable energy solutions. The displays blend lessons from ecology, Earth Science, physics, chemistry and other topics in clear, understandable ways. The Nature Center also houses live animals and natural history exhibits and is the office for NVRPA’s naturalist staff.
