The Virginia Museum of Natural History is expanding. An outdoor education pavilion is going to be built. It will feature a replica of the largest bird ever known and several other exhibits. The exhibits will be forestry-related and will tie in to the nearby park. The pavilion will cost between $150,000-160,000 and the exhibits will cost about $40,000. The money comes from private donations and the Tobacco Commission. A campaign is also underway to raise an additional $25,000 to help improve the exhibits. To donate, call the museum at 276-634-4141 or visit the museum’s website or Facebook page.
