Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Learn New Skills with Missouri Conservation

Saturday, January 14, 2012

Ever wanted to learn how to hunt crows, cook a squirrel, clean your gun, or identify what animal left that poop in the woods?  Sounds fascinating, doesn't it?  The Missouri Conservation Department offers these free classes and more at locations all over the state and many of them are free!  You can find out more in the Nature & You Newsletter (this is for the Kansas City region - for other parts of the state, start here and then select your region.)

The one class that really caught my eye is the "Discover Nature Families: Maple Sugaring" class on Saturday, February 25th at the Burr Oak Woods Nature Center in Blue Springs.  I've always wanted to know how to do that, so it should be a fun 2 hours of hands-on. And it's free!  How awesome that the Department puts on these educational programs.

Are you thinking about any classes or learning new skills this year?  I'd love to hear about it.
