April 8, 2014, Ever given much thought to how animals survive our long winters? Today will focus on this topic. Join us as we travel with Wildlife Biologist Rich Hoppe from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife to some area deer yards. Participants will learn what it takes to manage such a delicate species. The afternoon we’ll visit an area greenhouse and invigorate our souls for the warm weather ahead and learn the tips and tricks from the pros about what it takes to get the upper hand advantage over our neighbor’s flowers and garden for the summer. Participants will be able to get their hands dirty by designing and planting their own outdoor flower pot. Later in the spring when the threat of frost has past, participants will be able to go back on their own and pick up their flower pot. Trip will depart from the Caribou Wellness and Recreation Center at 8:30am and return by 4:00pm. $30.00 includes a sit down lunch, outdoor planter and transportation. Inclement weather date is Thursday, April 10, 2014.
