FAMILIES IN THE OUTDOORS NEARING END OF 2019 SEASON

Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District (PCSWCD) has opened registration for final sessions  of Families in the Outdoors series. The Families in the Outdoors program was started in 2018 from a grant received by the Davis Conservation Foundation. The goal of this program is to engage with families outdoors and provide fun, educational opportunities to learn and play together.
The 3rd session of the Families in the Outdoors series is titled “Bugs” and will be held at the Law Farm in Dover-Foxcroft on Saturday, August 24th from 9 AM to 12 PM. This session will be led by PCSWCD staff, Amy Polyot from the Penobscot County Soil and Water Conservation District and Charlene from the Maine Entomological Society. Participants will learn about all kinds of Maine bugs and build-a-bug while venturing into the woods and waters.
The 4th and final session is titled Rocks, Gems and Dirt. This event will take place at the Law Farm in Dover-Foxcroft on Saturday, September 14th from 1 to 4 PM. PCSWCD staff will be joined by guest Fred Krone of Northern Maine Minerals in Greenville. Fred is going to be bringing all kinds of interesting rocks, crystals and fossils to check out, will discuss tools used to find these specimens, how to find special rocks in your backyard and lead a fossil-finding activity. If that wasn’t enough, the folks from Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District will have you looking at dirt in a whole new way – teaching that soil is life, has several textures and colors and so much more. Bring your kids, grandchildren or even a family friend and enjoy the great outdoors. This program is recommended for adults and children ages 5+.
To register contact the PCSWCD at 207-564-2321 ext. 3, info@piscataquisswcd.org, or on at www.piscataquisswcd.org.
