On September 24, 2014, the Virginia Living Museum presented Riverside with the Golden Paw Award. 

Virginia Living Museum Golden Paw Award

The Golden Paw Award is the highest award that the Virginia Living Museum (VLM) bestows to an individual, business or organization that has made a significant and lasting contribution to the museum over the years. 

In addition, the VLM noted Riverside's generosity and partnership with the addition of their newest interactive exhibit, Wild and Well. This exhibit was designed and developed by Museum staff to celebrate animal care at the Museum. The exhibit opened in June and is undeniably one of our most popular, especially for our youngest visitors and their families. They experience being an animal keeper or vet -prepare an animal diet, check a pulse or take an x-ray.  There is no better way for children to make an easy and familiar connection to human health and nutrition!
