Meet the education ambassadors that call the Wildlife Center of Virginia home

wildlife center of virginiaThe Wildlife Center of Virginia will be presenting at two events during the coming week, and audiences will have the chance to meet some of the non-releasable education ambassadors that call the center home.

The event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome, but registration is required.
