Campers learn about animals from a Maine warden

BANGOR - Some lucky campers got to spend time with a Maine game warden Wednesday afternoon.

They learned about life forms in their own backyard, what those animals eat, and what kinds of prints they leave in the woods.

 

They also learned about the important role Maine's wardens play in protecting our ecosystem.

 

"Our job is to see to it that we keep it forever, because once it's gone it's gone, and we'll never get it back." Said warden Shannon Fish. "So we have laws and rules in place so that people can follow them and it will help conserve the wildlife we have in the state."

 

The kids got to touch some animal furs, help in identifying paw prints and after the lesson, they all got Maine game warden bracelets.
