In January 2014, the Illinois River Watershed Partnership purchased the former Lakeview Baptist Church building in Cave Springs in order to convert it into a Watershed Learning Center. In the past five months, this building has totally transformed, and over 1,600 visitors have stopped in to see the progress and participate in our on-site educational programs!
