This weekend BBBS
offered it's 6th bi-annual Bigs & Littles Training at Dawes Arboretum. We
had a special Dawes Guide, Nancy, who offered us an informative and beautiful
walk through the woods and wetlands near the Red Barn. She showed our matches
the different wildlife to be looking for and some of the clues they leave
behind which prove their whereabouts. Everyone was able to see some geese, a
red tailed hawk, bluebirds and red winged blackbirds, just to name a few.
Although it was a bit chilly, the sun shone and spring was in full bloom!
Everyone said that they felt it was a great learning experience and that they
are more inclined to get outdoors to explore with their Littles now. Thank you
to Dawes, Nancy and Lee's Chicken who provided a scrupmtious hot lunch for all!
