World Veterinary Day 2023

A day to celebrate veterinarians, their work and their impact. Although the importance of veterinarians is hardly a secret, people often forget that veterinarians’ work goes beyond clinical care of animals. Meet the Virginia Living Museum veterinarian, Dr. Katrina Frerichs, during World Vet Day to learn about what being a vet at an institution like the Virginia Living Museum looks like day to day!

Spring Native Plant Sale 2023

Member Preview Sale: April 20 | 4pm-6pm

Public Sale:  April 22-23, 29-30 | 9am-4:30pm

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.
