SCARBOROUGH — A former antenna testing tower overlooking Scarborough Marsh gets new life as an observation deck when it opens Saturday at 53 Manson Libby Road.

A celebration of the opening is planned from 10 a.m. to noon by Friends of Scarborough Marsh, Maine Audubon’s Scarborough Marsh Nature Center and the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

The tower, on land bought from the Gervais family by the department in 2009, offers multi-story views of the marsh. Representatives from the organizations will be part of an open house detailing features of the new property, marsh ecology and the habitats provided by the marsh.
