NekoCon’s selected charity for this year’s event is The Virginia Living Museum! Throughout the weekend you will be able to support this wonderful organization’s conservation and education efforts in Hampton Roads and beyond!
The Virginia Living Museum is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2016 – 50 years of stimulating knowledge, awareness and appreciation of the living world.
Created by two community organizations to promote science education, the museum continues to be a museum leader in its use of native wildlife to present its message. Museum visitors encounter more habitats, wildlife and plant species than would be encountered in a lifetime of outdoor adventures in Virginia. The exhibits showcase all of the state’s regions from the upland coves of the Appalachian Mountains to the salty offshore waters of the Atlantic Ocean and feature more than 250 different animal species, including 11 that are endangered or threatened.
The museum is located at 524 J. Clyde Morris Blvd., Newport News. It is open daily 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
