A screecher owl at the Blue Hills Fall Festival.

The animals who call the Trailside Museum home are used to educate the public, promote awareness and active concern about about the natural world.

Through the Wildlife Guardian Program you will adopt an animal and help support the many programs offered at the museum. You will recieve a personalized letter and a photo of the animal that you have symbolically adopted. All the information about the species and how they came to be at the Trailside Museum will be included.

All donations are tax deductible and make a great gift for all animal lovers young and old.
