It’s the time of year when the natural world in Virginia is full of new life, with baby animals being born in our zoos and aquariums and public gardens showing off their beauty in full bloom. Even though we can’t experience these things in person right now, it doesn’t mean we can’t experience them at all. We’ve got plenty of ways to satisfy your curiosity about wildlife, nature and the wonder of the world around us from home.
Bring a smile to your face by watching daily videos of “animal ambassadors,” from parrots to ferrets (warning: cuteness overload), take live virtual tours of zoos and aquariums, explore the wonder of Luray Caverns through VR, and nurture your curiosity about space by chatting with experts from the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Center, for starters.
