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.
