Fly Fishing
Apr 17 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
5 sessions in Room CTR 108. If you’ve ever wanted to learn or improve skills with flies and fly rod, this is your chance! Designed for beginners through intermediate anglers, start with the basics covering fish, habitat, food sources, equipment, flies, accessories, knots, casting, etc. and conclude with an optional field trip to practice and apply skills on lake and stream. Each of the 5-week sessions builds on the previous. Registration limited to 15. NOTE: Fly box and flies included – everyone receives complementary flies & accessories! Equipment not needed for classroom sessions but is necessary for field trip. Instructors: Bob Baughman and Ron Young share an odd obsession with this sport. Bob has chased fish with a fly rod from saltwater to fresh for over 30 years. Ron jumped into fly fishing with both feet after retirement, garnering significant experience, and he’s never looked back. Both men are engineers by degree, and there is not a technical aspect of the sport they don’t enjoy exploring. They have a laid back, easy going style that takes out the “techno-speak.” This course will introduce you to all things fly fishing if you’re new to it, but it’s also for anyone at[...]

Building Bee, Butterfly, or Bat Houses for Garden Environment
Apr 18 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
In Room BTC 122. In this unique opportunity you can make and take home a project of your own with instruction and guidance of instructor Joe Garant, of NEMROC. Pollination is a fascinating natural phenomenon; an essential ecological function. Without pollinators, Earth’s terrestrial ecosystems would not survive. Over 80% of flowering plants require a pollinator to reproduce. Animals that assist plant reproduction as pollinators include bats, butterflies, moths, flies, birds, beetles, ants, and bees. Around the world, as in NE Michigan, pollinators are declining due to threats to biodiversity. Principal reasons for loss of habitat are pesticides, pollution, and invasive species. Joe teaches this hands-on workshop to help you make a significant, positive change in environmental quality of your property and community. Be an advocate for pollinators; make your property a National Wildlife Federation certified habitat; discover remarkable things happening at NEMROC and bring home your own Butterfly/Bee house OR Bat House. Cost is $25. Contact the Volunteer Center to register, 989-358-7271 or go to www.alpenavolunteercenter.org.
