MARLBORO — The Southern Vermont Natural History Museum will offer an afternoon of back yard wildlife at its annual open house on Saturday from 1 p.m. until close.

This year the museum will feature opportunities to learn about the wild critters who call its back yards and local woodlots home. Live animals, fish and wildlife biologists, a tracking walk, wildlife photography, storytelling, kids activities and more will provide something for all ages.

This year there will be snacks available with proceeds benefiting the food fund for the museum's live education animals. After the great response to last year's bonfire, the day will again finish with a fire behind the Vermont Distillers building starting at 4:30 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public. Follow the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum on Facebook for specific program times, guests and any new developments. For more information, go to or call 802-464-0048.
