We love wildlife here at Vermont Woods Studios.  Forest conservation
is, afterall, a large part of our mission.  So, if you're anything like us, we have an
exciting event for you to attend this weekend. Saturday, September 15, is the third annual
Vermont Wildlife Festival. This day-long event, put together by the Southern
Vermont Natural History Museum
, is designed to "showcase the many ways
that we enjoy the outdoors in Vermont."
The day (10am-4pm) is packed full of events by over twenty different organizations. During the Vermont Wildlife Festival you will see live animals (including
raptors and a wolf), have the opportunity to go on a guided hike, a scavenger
hunt, interactive demonstrations, wilderness survival information, and much more. Not quite sold yet? What
if I told you that this event is FREE?

Still not 100% sold? Have I mentioned that this event will
be taking place right near the Hogback Mountain Scenic Overlook? It is a
panoramic 100-mile breath-taking view. It is a must-see, and a perfect photo opportunity,
for both Vermonters and tourists alike.

For more information about this event, I encourage you to
visit the Vermont Wildlife Festival website. You will find directions and a
full list of the events.
