Lost Island Nature Center holding Family Events during Ruthven Cabin Fever Weekend 

The Lost Island Nature Center is holding family-friendly events on Saturday during the Ruthven Cabin Fever Weekend.

Naturalist Kaitlin Anderson says a youth fishing clinic will be held on Saturday morning.  "To start off the day, we are holding youth ice fishing, so that's for kids ages 7 to 15 from 8 am to 10 am, and we offer 30 minute time slots, so you do have to call and pre-register your child by February 14th because we can only take 6 out at a time with the number of supplies and ice huts that we already have here at The Nature Center."

She adds that the public is invited for the chili cook-off in the afternoon.  "We already have 8 chili makers registered, but you have until the 12th to register if you want to make a chili and bring it in.  The cost is $5, kids 12 and under are free at the door and then they can try all 8 chilis and we'll have some corn bread and some cinnamon rolls and some beverages provided.  It'll just be a good time to chat with your friends and neighbors and warm up with some chili and have a good meal."

Chili Cook-off will run from 2-3 pm on Saturday.
