Celebrate the Earth Day 2014

Arts and Entertainment

From: Virginia Living Museum

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. The red wolves and coyotes may devour ice treats, while the raccoons may search for treats in a basket full of newspapers.

Learn ways to help the environment by reducing, reusing and recycling waste. Visit the Goodson Living Green House and Conservation Gardens for green building and gardening tips.
 
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 (trees and bags while supplies last), thousands of native plants for sale and earth-friendly animal shows.
 
Plus, THINK GREEN and help the VLM recycle! Bring your batteries, cosmetic containers, cell phones  and old sneakers for recycling. The Nike-Reuse-A-Shoe program will turn those smelly sneakers into playgrounds and basketball courts.

Location: Virginia Living Museum, 524 J. Clyde Morris Boulevard, Newport News, VA 23601
