Watch the lunar eclipse, search for wildflowers, sit around the campfire
MARLBORO - It will be a busy weekend at the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum. On Saturday, May 14, join the Mountainside Center, 117 Adams Cross Road, for a kids exploration of “Spring Forest Flowers,” where participants will explore the woods in search of early wildflowers. Call the museum to sign up for Nicki Steel’s photography walk that afternoon; only a couple of spots are left.
Then stay up late Sunday, May 15, for a Lunar Eclipse Party, held in partnership with Vermont Distillers, at the Hogback Mountain Overlook. There will be fire, night hikes, and the ability to watch a full lunar eclipse with an owl. Donations are requested for participation in these programs but not required. Contact the museum for more information or visit www.vermontmuseum.org.
