Looking for something exciting to do in Southern Vermont today?  How about heading to the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum on Hogback Mountain to meet their newest resident, an American Bald Eagle?

Thanks to the efforts of the conservationists at the Marlboro Elementary School, the Vermont Community Foundation, the Deerfield Valley Rotary Club, the Marlboro Alliance and museum director Ed Metcalf, an eagle who is injured and unable to return to the wild now has a plush new home.  She just arrived from the Ironside Bird Rescue facility in Wyoming where she was cared for after receiving a permanent wing injury rendering her unable to fly.
