At Last - A Day Off!

Today is the first day we have had completely off in 36 days.  Most of our days aren’t 8 full hours, some of those days were 1-2 hours.  But, it’s nice to finally be finished with some extra projects that we picked up.

We finished painting all the disc golf baskets in the park (55 total baskets).  Two of the courses have baskets very close together so we painted one course yellow and one course orange.  Each basket has 3 coats of paint.  There was a lot of drying time with this project!

We had to make a few new bluebird houses.  More on that later!

Our weekend programs have started.  We have evening programs on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings.  We also have a Jr. Ranger program on Saturday morning and some kind of program on Sunday morning.  Last year our Sunday morning program was a 1 mile hike.  This year we are going to change it up a bit and do other things.

Dissecting owl pellets continues to be one of our most popular Jr. Ranger programs.
One of our new programs for this summer is an introduction to disc golf. 
We've spent a lot of time putting together several other new programs that we'll try out soon!
Stay tuned for more summer fun.


  1. Wow! Looks like you guys have been busy! Can't wait to see more on your Jr. Ranger Programs! (Maybe I can borrow an idea or two) :) Am going to miss you guys next winter.....you both added so much to the Rockin Refuge Rangers program!

  2. You sound like us... don't mind being busy as long as we're having some fun... and you do look like you're enjoying all you do.
