First, we’ll gather up nets, buckets, and microscopes for a pond-side safari to explore the many hidden kinds of life under the surface of the museum's freshwater pond! Next, we will head into the great outdoors to explore the world around us.
At the museum. Lunches are prepared by the Museum’s Wild Side Café.
Next up – you’ll have the chance to visit the entire State of Virginia – all within the exhibit galleries of the Virginia Living Museum! You’ll have time to explore a variety of Virginia’s natural wonders – carefully and creatively recreated with an impressive array of native plants and live animals. After your romp through “our” Virginia, it’s all about birds! Bird beaks, bird feet, bird wings, bird feathers – big birds, little birds, seed-eating birds and meat-eating birds. Would you like to know what’s inside an “owl pellet”? Would you like to meet different kinds of live birds? We thought so!
