February Member Perk: Refer a Friend – Feb. 1 – 29

We love our members…and their friends!

For the month of February every member who refers a friend to become a VLM member will receive a FREE Behind the Scenes Tour! See exclusive “staff only areas and discover exciting animal care secrets at the Museum.

How it works:

  • After a purchase is made, the friend who was referred will have to reply to the confirmation email with the name of the member who recommended that they purchase a membership.
  • If a purchase is made at the front desk, the friend will need to tell the front desk associate to the member who recommended they purchased a VLM membership.
  • Membership will confirm the member’s name and send an email to the member who referred their friend!

Participate in this member perk today!


Spring Native Plant Sale Member Preview – April 16

Choose from an incredible array of beautiful and unusual native plants for a variety of garden sites and styles, from wet ponds to dry rock gardens. Many of these are excellent plants for attracting butterflies, hummingbirds and other wildlife to your yard. The Virginia Living Museum’s horticulture staff holds this annual sale as a fund-raiser, but the real goal is to introduce the gardening public to the incredible variety of native plants that will do well in the landscape and to educate gardeners about those which are better left in the wild. Native plants are good choices for area gardeners because such plants tolerate the area’s weather and serve as food and shelter for area wildlife, while also providing a good show in the garden.

The sale will be held in the Conservation Garden and as always, the Museum’s knowledgeable horticulture staff will be on hand to answer your questions, discuss the wildlife benefits of native plants and help with any particular gardening situations. All plants are nursery propagated and many are not yet available in the commercial nursery trade.

Sale held rain or shine.
Admission to the sale is free.
