Up Early and Down at the Fishing Hole...

by Sherry Swanson on 05/07/11

I got one!  I got a r-e-a-l-l-y BIG one!

Let's hope we hear that a lot next weekend during Kids Fishing Day down at Maramec Spring Park.  Expectations are for 1000 youngsters to be in attendance. I know Pheasant Acres RV Park is expecting about 25 kids to be camping here with their parents.  Let's hope these little anglers really do land some big trout.  And I can't even imagine how many s'mores will be consumed at the nightly campfires. 

I thought I was too old to graduate again, but, nope!  My Master Naturalist graduation is Tuesday night, the 10th.  It's been a lot of fun to master the flora and fauna of the Ozark Plateau that surrounds this area.  I think my favorite discovery this week was the dog-tooth violets that are flourishing just on the other side of my fence line on the Conservation land.  They are incredible.

* Graduation which is a beginning and an opportunity to serve, teach, and grow is a celebration! May your novice naturalists get inspiration and joy from your patient mentoring!
