Raking Weekend 2018 Reschedule



Looking as if you are inside a snow globe is pretty if:

It is December.

You are hoping for a white Christmas.

Looking as if you are inside a snow globe is NOT pretty if:

It is April and you are looking forward to the opening of the 2018 season.

With the recent weather system that is moving through northern Wisconsin adding copious amounts of snow to our recent cover of snow that amounted to a foot of snow, we have had to reschedule our Annual Raking Cleanup Weekend to the weekend of April 21st and April 22nd.

Below is our revised flyer with the rescheduled dates. You can share the flyer by attaching to an email or click on the image to print it out for distribution.

We are holding on to the hope that the weather will cooperate to allow our scheduled Opening Day of April 28th. Fingers crossed!

Bearded Dragon: The Scary Looking Gentle Dragon

Check out the photo of our bearded dragons basking in their enclosure totally oblivious to the frigid winter weather outside!

Bearded dragons are a type of lizard that originate from Australia. These friendly reptiles are yellow or tan, and they get their name from the way they can flare the skin at their throats. Natural habitat of the beardie include deserts, arid & rocky areas, dry forests & scrublands. Unlike other lizards, bearded dragons are not able to detach their tails if they need to escape from predators. If they lose or damage their tails they will be tailless for the rest of their lives.

A few fun facts about bearded dragons include:

  • The bearded dragon's tail is almost as long as its body.
  • Beardies flare their skin on their throat area when feeling threatened to make them appear more threatening to predators and other animals.
  • Males and females can be easily distinguished by a couple of features. Males have wider heads and they are longer than females. Females have thinner and more slender tails than males.
  • Spines grow on their throat, sides of the body and their head.
  • Beardies eat a variety of things: greens, leaves, fruit, flowers, and insects.

Bearded dragons make interesting pets and are fairly low maintenance however, they do require regular care and the right setup.


One important fact to consider when buying a bearded dragon for a pet is how long they live. The average lifespan is five to ten years, so purchasing a beardie is a commitment that should not be taken lightly. These reptiles make unique, friendly pets and need a minimal amount of care. However, they'll need that care for their entire lives, so be sure you're making a commitment you're prepared to live with.
