GET THE FAMILY OUTDOORS AT THE MASS OUTDOOR EXPO 9/25! —Families, friends, Scouts (Boys and Girls), and other youth groups are invited to a free day of trying outdoor skills and demonstrations on September 25, 2011, at the 15th annual Massachusetts Outdoor Expo (The Big MOE), held at the Hamilton Rod and Gun Club grounds in Sturbridge, 9:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M. The Big MOE, sponsored by the Facts About Wildlife and Nature Society (FAWNS), is a free, family-oriented event celebrating outdoor skills, nature, art, and wildlife. This all-day family event is free, thanks to co-sponsors like the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries & Wildlife, Hamilton Rod and Gun Club, The Weatherby Foundation, Whitetails Unlimited and the Worcester County League of Sportsmen’s Clubs. Sportsmen’s clubs; locally-based, outdoor-related businesses; and other conservation groups sponsor a variety of skills stations, craft tables, and other exhibits relating to wildlife and the outdoors. The Big MOE is the perfect opportunity to introduce young and old to outdoor skills and activities such as fishing, kayaking, shooting, building a bird box, geocaching, mountain biking, tree identification, nature arts and crafts, New England Pioneer encampment, tomahawk throwing, and more! See live birds of prey, native reptiles, and tree stand safety demonstrations.
