Camp North Woods mentioned in Ellsworth American article on game warden’s talk
Camp North Woods was mentioned in an Ellsworth American article on a recent Winter Harbor talk by John MacDonald, a corporal with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. MacDonald spoke to attract recruits and inform the general public now that the popular “Animal Planet” television show that focused on the department is over, according to the article. Camp North Woods, which the department initiated in 2015, is a direct result of the growth of interest in “North Woods Law,” the article states. The camp is designed to provide youth and their families with opportunities to learn lifelong outdoor skills and become educated about the importance of sustaining Maine’s natural resources, according to the agency. It is held at and hosted by the University of Maine 4-H Camp and Learning Center at Bryant Pond.
