Sep 04   Spider Workshop - Northland Arboretum
2 part workshop – dinner break in-between on your own)

Limited to 20 participants

In the words of spider enthusiast and celebrated naturalist Larry Weber "Spiders have gotten a lot of bad PR".
Spiders are a common member of our ecosystem, but despite this status, they are not well known. Join Larry as he debunks the myth of the spider and learn basic spider biology in this exciting, entertaining field course.
You'll observe and catch spiders in their own environment, study their web patterns, and discover which families of spiders are more commonly seen.
You'll use magnifying glasses, close-focus binoculars, and even cameras to explore these interesting and harmless critters.
Safe handling of spiders and introductory microscope work are also addressed.

Larry was a natural science teacher for more than 40 years before retiring.
In addition to inspiring his students by creatively utilizing the outdoor classroom, Larry has a personal interest in photographing and writing about nature. He has written hundreds of articles with photos for numerous publications, including Minnesota Conservation Volunteer.
Larry has written 10 books including “Spiders of the North Woods”
 He offers a weekly Phenology program on KUMD radio in Duluth.

Larry will have his books available to purchase at this presentation workshop.

Sep 05 - Sep 07   BIR MAP Proving Grounds 2.0

The Modern Automotive Performance Proving Grounds will showcase drag racing, drifting and autocross competitions, burnout contests, open lapping on the Competition Road Course, a car show and a whole lot more.

The Proving Grounds features front-wheel, rear-wheel and all-wheel-drive cars and trucks, some of which are turbo charged and can cover the quarter mile in 8-9 seconds. Import bikes will have their own classes on the drag strip as well.

Although drag racing is a popular part of the program, the drifting competition was a fan favorite. Cars are timed as they drive through a course mostly in controlled (or uncontrolled, in some cases) skids. Translation: lots of smoke, burnt rubber and screeching.

Autocross is similar in that drivers are timed as they maneuver through a course, but they’re slower and more controlled without the skidding. Open lapping is on the road course, where cars aren’t racing against each other but are timed and can challenge themselves.

Sep 05   Community Educational Seminar And Vein Screening In Crosslake
Painful veins in your legs can be a symptom of serious health problems. Yet many people defer treatment, thinking that varicose veins are merely cosmetic, and they don’t want to appear vain. Others grow accustomed to the swelling and pain because their condition progresses slowly, creating a “new normal.”
 
Learn more about vein conditions and treatment options from Dr. Ross Bengtson and have an initial screening during a complimentary educational seminar from 9-11 a.m. on Friday, September 5, at the Crosslake Community Center, located at 14126 Daggett Pine Road in Crosslake. Space is limited, so please register by calling 218.828.7414 or online at EssentiaHealth.org/VeinServices.
 
Vein conditions are not solely a cosmetic problem,” according to Dr. Bengtson, General Surgeon at Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Medical Center and Clinics. Swollen or discolored veins can be symptoms of other medical conditions that need to be treated to avoid serious complications, he explains.
 
“If your legs are swollen, fatigue easy, or have unsightly or painful leg veins, you should talk to your primary care physician or a surgeon experienced with treating veins.”
 
Venous diseases are caused by poorly functioning valves within veins. This inefficiency causes spider veins – red or blue web-like veins on the skin’s surface. Untreated, they can grow into varicose veins, which appear as bulges on the leg’s surface. The disease can progress to include swelling, pain, clotting, ulceration and skin inflammation.

Sep 07   Wild Edible Mushroom Workshop - Northland Aboretum

This workshop is designed to help people develop the skills and confidence to begin collecting, identifying, and safely eating wild edible mushrooms. Activities will include a photo presentation of edible Midwest mushrooms, practice identification with fresh specimens, and a mushroom foray in the woods of the Arboretum. We will end the day learning basic mushroom culinary techniques, cooking wild mushroom pizzas together, and sampling our creations.

Edibility guidelines, cautions and other pointers will be provided for each "form group" of mushrooms, with emphasis on the most common, delicious, and readily identifiable mushrooms found in the Midwest.

Dozens of species of edible/inedible/poisonous mushrooms will be on display!

Bring snacks, a bag lunch, camera, notebook, mosquito-proof clothing, and mushrooms you are curious about or just want to share! THE MORE MUSHROOMS, THE MERRIER!

Instructors Sarah & Nick Jordan are knowledgeable and enthusiastic collectors and cultivators of edible fungi. They have mushroomed everywhere from the rainforests of Hawaii to the mountains of Pacific Northwest, but are most impressed by the diversity and abundance of mushrooms in the Midwest field, forest, and lawn.

Recommended field guide is North American Mushrooms: A Field Guide to Edible and Inedible Fungi by Orson K. Miller and Hope Miller 2006

Please RSVP to the Arboretum if you plan on coming, so we can plan accordingly. Phone 218-829-8770.  Payment due when you register.

Walk-ins welcome if there is room.

Sep 18   Community Educational Seminar & Vein Screening
Painful veins in your legs can be a symptom of serious health problems. Yet many people defer treatment, thinking that varicose veins are merely cosmetic, and they don’t want to appear vain. Others grow accustomed to the swelling and pain because their condition progresses slowly, creating a “new normal.”
 
Learn more about vein conditions and treatment options from Dr. Ross Bengtson and have an initial screening during a complimentary educational seminar from 6:30 - 8:30 PM on Thursday, September 18, at the Arrowwood Lodge in Baxter located at 6967 Forest Road. Space is limited, so please register by calling 218-828-7414 or online at EssentiaHealth.org/VeinServices.
 
Vein conditions are not solely a cosmetic problem,” according to Dr. Bengtson, General Surgeon at Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Medical Center and Clinics. Swollen or discolored veins can be symptoms of other medical conditions that need to be treated to avoid serious complications, he explains.
 
“If your legs are swollen, fatigue easy, or have unsightly or painful leg veins, you should talk to your primary care physician or a surgeon experienced with treating veins.”
 
Venous diseases are caused by poorly functioning valves within veins. This inefficiency causes spider veins – red or blue web-like veins on the skin’s surface. Untreated, they can grow into varicose veins, which appear as bulges on the leg’s surface. The disease can progress to include swelling, pain, clotting, ulceration and skin inflammation.

Jan 24   2015 Brainerd Jaycees $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza

Mark your calendars for the world’s greatest ice fishing contest – the Brainerd Jaycees $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza on Gull Lake near Brainerd. Join the more than 10,000 anglers as they vie for fabulous prizes, including a truck, all-terrain vehicles, ice fishing equipment and so much more!

Since 1990, this signature event of the Brainerd Jaycees has raised more than $1 million for Brainerd Lakes Area charities, especially Confidence Learning Center, and rallied thousands of volunteers.

Contestants can expect the same great event as in years past with the opportunity to win large prizes at various places on the leader board – 1st place wins a GMC or Ford pick-up truck, 100th place goes home with an Ice Castle fish house, and Arctic Cat 4-wheelers are spread throughout the list.  The Lindy Big Fish Bounty is back again this year, where the 24th place winner can earn $3,000 in addition to the $2,400 on the prize list if they catch the winning fish on the special edition Emerald Shiner colored Lindy Rattlin’ Flyer Spoon available exclusively at Mills Fleet Farm stores.  Also returning this year after a one year hiatus is the Catch of the Day Extravaganza Give Away, and additional contest within the Extravaganza, giving participants the chance to win a prize package valued at $9,000 for an additional $5.  Stamps for this contest can be purchases online and at Mills Fleet Farm in Baxter.
