Virginia Living Museum Animal Aid Club
The Virginia Living Museum supports children who respect animals, especially those indigenous to our state. Our goal, first and foremost, is for children to have fun and enjoy helping the animals that teach us valuable lessons every day at the Museum. Volunteerism at an early age can be rewarding and fun. Each one of us can make a difference, and by working together we can give back to our community.
You help the animals at the Virginia Living Museum!
