Earth Day at the VLM

The Virginia Living Museum celebrates Earth Day with special activities for our animals and guests. Observe the animals as they receive toys, treats and other enrichment activities to stimulate natural behaviors. Learn ways to help the environment by reducing, reusing and recycling waste. Several environmental organizations will have displays and information about conservation measures.

Earth-friendly vendors will show and sell green wares. There will also be crafts, eco-friendly giveaways, thousands of native plants for sale and earth-friendly animal shows. Plus, bring your batteries, cell phones and old sneakers for recycling. Don’t miss the Peninsula Youth Orchestra performance at noon.  Open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Activities Included in museum admission.
