Interactive lumberjacks program for kids teaches about Maine’s $8.5 billion forest industry

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — Northern Maine Fair will teach kids how to be lumberjacks this summer.

For 11 years now, the Northern Maine Fair has seen droves of young people participate in “Li’l Farmers at the Fair,” an exhibit that encourages kids to explore and try different aspects of farming and agriculture, including planting seeds, picking vegetables and learning about farm animals.

The fair’s new program “Li’l Lumberjacks” will be based on that concept.
