Living on the Water
"Living on the Water" contains a wide variety of bird, mammal and marine animal mounts depicted in elaborate scenes, as well as actual boats and models of ships and other large marine vessels. The exhibit also includes a variety of historical artifacts, including guns and other hunting and gathering tools, as well as interactive displays.
All of these elements combine to tell the story of Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay, the largest estuary in the United States and an area of great natural and environmental importance. From its formation millions of years ago to its current state, the exhibit walks visitors through the history of the bay, with a heavy emphasis on how humans have benefited from this natural resource through consumption, transportation, recreation, workforce and other means. It also explains the consequences of human use of the bay and the efforts to restore it to its original environmental condition.
"Living on the Water" is sponsored by Dominion, Bassett Furniture, Memorial Hospital of Martinsville & Henry County, Carter Bank & Trust, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality.
