Department of Natural Resources visit

An intern with the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) came to do a presentation today at Northern Lights Resort.  The audience was all the little children at the resort this weekand I was there to help.  We had ten children ages 4 – 14 and I think they all enjoyed it and all learned from it, mostly me!  We learned the life cycle of a fish and they played a game going up stream, in the lake and down stream all on the big meadow near the lodge.  Then they each received a big stuffed fish, all different.  They learned the differences between fish and the name of the different parts of a fish, and why each fish is designed the way it is (for protection, etc.)  Then they came inside and made decorative fishing lure with craft things Nate the intern brought with him.  After that the children all went outside with Nate and fished for a while off the dock.  Talk about active little ones but it was fun and I learned a lot.  Some of the kids know more about fishing than I do but I think each of them learned something new!
