Join Us!

There are several in-person spring and summer events on the Wildlife Center's calendar that are all open to the public. We hope you can join us!

Untamed: Life is Wild

Season Four of UNTAMED: Life is Wild runs April 21 through June 9! Tune in and watch live during weekly episodes.  

National Pollinator Bingo

As spring approaches, we've created a game (with prizes) to celebrate our pollinator plants across the country! Bingo cards, specific to each region in the United States, feature commercially-available native vegetation that promotes and supports pollinators such as bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies. 

Caring for Birds

Celebrate Spring with the Wildlife Center of Virginia's special Caring for Songbirds program! As a special Spring Caring for Birds sponsor, you [or your gift recipient] will receive a special sponsorship packet; your support goes toward caring for the hundreds of young birds that we'll admit this season.
