Help keep wildlife wild. Some tips from the #TriangleConservancy, which is working to preserve, protect and enhance the Triangle and restore it to a longleaf pine savanna. #SaveTheTriangle

Help keep wildlife wild. Some tips from the #TriangleConservancy, which is working to preserve, protect and enhance the Triangle and restore it to a longleaf pine savanna. #SaveTheTriangleWe have seen several foxes in the area of the #Triangle. No need to worry, this is kit-rearing time, so it is not unusual to see both adult and juvenile foxes as the latter are maturing and spending more time outside the den.

Foxes are unlikely to be dangerous, but there are some simple actions you can take to reduce the chance that a fox will hang around your house:

-Don't intentionally feed foxes or reward them for coming in contact with you. Lack of fear of humans could be misinterpreted by other people as a sign of aggression or disease in an otherwise healthy, normal fox.
-Feed your pets indoors and do not leave food outside.
-Keep your garbage secure. Set it out the day of pickup... not the night before.
-Keep bird feeder areas clean and use bird feeders that keep seed off the ground. You may need to take down your bird feeders if you are seeing foxes nearby regularly.
-Clean up any fallen fruit from bushes or trees.
-Close off crawl spaces under your house, sheds or other outbuildings to discourage foxes from resting there or raising their young.

Enjoy the beauty of wildlife from a distance! The Triangle is home to many types of flora and fauna, including white-tailed deer, gopher tortoises, raccoons, opossums, rabbits and, yes, foxes. #SaveTheTriangle #keepitwild Photo courtesy of Fontaine Radcliff Howard Photography

Advertising guru Leo Burnett used to say, When you reach for the stars, you may not quite get them, but you wont come up with a handful of mud either.

Ask No Quarter is our way of saying, No excuses. Do your best. Own it. If we fall short, well admit it, but we promise not to come up with a handful of mud.

With the increased emphasis on family travel and road trips this summer, Flight Works Alabama offers the perfect respite for weary road warriors.

Families visiting Flight Works Alabama will go from hearing the familiar refrain of “Are we there yet?” to “Can we stay a little longer?” as children and adults alike explore Discovery Space, where more than 40 state-of-the-art exhibits, many of them interactive, tell the story of aviation, from the history of flight to the science behind it.

This is no static display but where discovery takes flight! Located just off Interstate 10 in Mobile, Alabama, Flight Works Alabama offers an immersive, hands-on experience, where visitors can strap themselves into a flight simulator and experience take-off and landing an Airbus A320 during a test flight. And for those who feel the need for speed, they can take the controls of a Eurofighter jet and feel every maneuver as they bank, turn and dive. Nearby is Flight Works Alabama’s Virtual Reality Center, where the adventurous can choose from missions on board the International Space Station, explore the surface of Mars, take part in a sea rescue aboard an Airbus H175 maritime helicopter, and more.

After trying their hand at flight control basics, enthusiasts may want to give actual flight a go. Flight Works Alabama’s Drone Fly Zone lets visitors test their piloting skills as they fly drones through a house-sized drone aviary, flying around, through or over various obstacles.

For those who want to show off their creative side, the simulated industry grade spray gun allows budding artists to design their own airplane paint scheme.

All of this and more awaits visitors, including exhibits of some of the the tools and parts needed to build a commercial aircraft, a STEM career center, tours of the Airbus A320 Final Assembly Line (for an additional cost), workshops, camps and field trips.

Flight Works Alabama is open 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, and 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays. Admission is $13.50 for ages 10 and up, $9.00 for ages 4-9, children 3 and under receive free admission. Additional cost of $3.00 for Eurofighter Experience and $10 for 30 minutes of drone flight (visitors to provide own drones). Final Assembly Tour and Flight Works Alabama combined ticket is $23.50, tours available on limited basis.
