On Saturday, October 25, the Birds of Vermont Museum will be open from 1pm – 4pm in the afternoon, in order to celebrate the life and legacy of Bob Spear. Please come and join us.

Bob Spear, our Founding Director, combined his lifelong love of birds and woodcarving into one of the most unusual conservation and education opportunities possible. We will have a chance to share memories, photos, conversation, and — because Bob loved it so — ice cream. The tree house and trails will be open also, and there are several places you might rest, contemplate, and observe birds.

Parking is limited, please carpool as much as possible. Audubon Vermont is graciously allowing visitors to use their parking lots as well.

Regular hours will resume on Sunday the 26th.

The family and the Museum are grateful and honored to read some of the comments and essays about Bob that have been published recently. A special thanks to Bryan Pfeiffer (http://bryanpfeiffer.com/2014/10/20/bob-spear-1920-2014/) and WCAX (http://www.wcax.com/story/26825578/vermont-naturalist-bob-spear-dead-at-94) for their kind words.

The Museum and staff can be reached by phone (802 434-2167), email (museum@birdsofvermont.org), and online (http://www.birdsofvermont.org).
