In this program, we'll become bear aware by learning about bear ecology and how our actions can prevent bears from becoming a nuisance. We'll conclude by doing a paint pout on a bear cutout. You'll leave with a beautiful piece of art that you've created. Paint pouring can be messy. Wearing old clothes is recommended. Children under 16 must have an adult present. Reservations are required. To make a reservation, go on-line at www.mdc.mo.gov/twinpines. For further information, call 573-325-1381.

Ever been on the river and no one is catching except for that one lone fisherman?

Join us for a free Introduction to Orienteering course!

In the first part of this program, participants will use a provided 3-2-1 Silva Compass to practice dialing in and taking a bearing, sighting an object, pacing their distance and map-reading.

Next, participants will use their skills to complete one of several orienteering courses within the MDC Ozark Regional Office grounds by finding target trees with a special symbol specific to their course to work towards unscrambling a secret message!

The majority of the class will take place outdoors. Participants should be prepared for the weather by wearing appropriate footwear and cold-weather coats. The courses will require hiking up and down a steeper slope through forested areas that may be thick with brush - be prepared to orienteer like a pioneer!
