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 how to create wildlife habitat right in your backyard, from small mammal habitat to bird habitat. 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.
Learn basic kayaking skills and practice on the flat waters. Topics include safety and equipment needed. All equipment is provided if needed. Dress to get wet. Feel free to bring your own kayak or canoe and we'll glide along the calm waters and take in the gorgeous scenery!
Learn about wild turkey habitat and behavior, hunting gear, calling, hunting safety and ethics and how to dress and clean your turkey. You'll even make your own turkey box call to take home.
You've got your deer, NOW WHAT? Proper care of game in the field is very important part of hunting ethics. This is often a very difficult thing to learn on your own. This class will review the procedure for field dressing a white tail deer. Be prepared for a hands-on opportunity.
Learn how to stay safe in the outdoors. Participants will learn outdoor skills and what to do if lost, how to build a shelter, make a fire, signal for help, purify water, find food and recognize the signs of hypothermia. People prepared to survive are least likely to end up in a life-threatening situation. Lots of hands-on. Feel more comfortable in your ability to cope with the unexpected!
How exciting it is to find your very first antler shed! We'll discuss some tips and tricks to finding them. What time of year, where and how to look for them. A little luck is very helpful too! Then we'll go for a short hike to see what we can find.

The afternoon will be spent outside building survival shelters, rescue fires and navigating through the woods so dress appropriately. In addition learn basic winter aid techniques.
This is a women's weekend favorite! Cooking outdoors over an open fire is challenging and fun! You'll learn to build a fire, cook directly over the hot coals using a Dutch Oven, pie iron, foil packs and reflector oven. You will be able to try several different ways of cooking over a campfire. Recipes will be shared and everyone will gt a chance to prepare and sample a variety of dishes - even desserts!. This is a fun hands-on campfire cooking class.
For many visitors, catching a glimpse of a Maine moose is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. They are magnificent to watch, and its always exciting to capture on your camera. You'll have the opportunity to safely and comfortable view these creatures and other wildlife as we travel along the old backwoods roads. You'll also learn about moose habits and habitat from a knowledgeable guide.
We'll take you to some of the most beautiful awe inspiring places in Maine. We'll travel to a mountain top that has a 360 degree panoramic view of the most brilliant fall colors. This tour is also beautiful any time of the year.
Have you ever wanted to try to shoot a bow? This class will teach you the basics of a bow and how to be successful at shooting the bulls eye.
Let's build a memory of the 'big lunker' you caught or the 'one that got away'. Several brooks, steams and lakes in the area are great little fishing holes to cast a few. Bring your own gear and we'll have some fun. We can even cook up your catch of the day!
A friendly competition against your friends. The competition has some physical activities, although the physical activities are not strenuous, this does require some limited physical abilities. Hatchet throw, shoot the turkey, walk the log with waders, pile the firewood and much more fun. An extremely funny competition! Are you ready for an afternoon of laughter?
