Staring Lake Outdoor Center
Come meet the Outdoor Center's newest resident, Smokie. Smokie is a 6-year-old Polish rabbit. He weighs about 1.5 pounds and is jet black. Polish rabbits are known for their uniform color and their ears which are straight up and touch together. Smokie was a 4-H rabbit who was donated to the Outdoor Center because he is too old to breed. Stop by and meet him during the Nature Rocks! weekly open house on Saturdays between 10 a.m. and noon.
