BEND, Ore. (AP) - The High Desert Museum in Bend says it’s reopening the Autzen Otter Exhibit later this month.

The exhibit that first opened more than 30 years ago has been closed for renovations since last fall.

The Bulletin newspaper of Bend reports (http://is.gd/HSyRfa ) that the outdoor space available for the museum’s two otters will remain roughly the same size. The concrete walls surrounding their enclosure have been replaced with glass, improving the viewing experience for children and visitors in wheelchairs.

In another improvement, wood paneling on the back wall of the underground area has been removed and replaced with a mural and a 750-gallon aquarium for native fish.

The exhibit reopens Saturday, May 21.
