This Women's Whitetail Deer Hunt will fill up fast so call or sign up today!
A casual walk along the backyard trails, we'll look for wildlife signs. Deer, rabbit, fox and moose are frequent visitors to our backyard. We'll find where deer have bedded down for the night, visit a creature den, hear the many species of birds singing in the trees and identify the tracks of other area wildlife. We may even catch a glimpse of who is making the tracks! This nature walk is great for the beginner. Wear comfortable shoes or hiking boots.
Whittle your own hiking stick or walking staff as they are sometimes called. Learn safe knife handling and sharpening skills. Bring your own knife (a lock back-folding knife or sheath knife). You can personalize your new creation with pyrography (woodburning). This is a fun class!
Learn why, when, where and how to attract birds to your backyard. Build your own bird house using common household tools. You can even woodburn a design on it if you choose.

Learn what components are needed for the wildlife you're trying to attract and what not to plant. Great fun for those that love watching wildlife close to home. You will build a bird house of your own to take home.
Connect to nature as we slowly meander along the forest path while listening to the birds, looking at the different greens of the trees, smelling the fragrance of the forest air, dipping your toes in a stream while we drink in the flavour of the forest and connect to nature through our senses. Also known as Forest Bathing.
