The Downs Park Junior Naturalists will explore the world of nature at Downs Park during six sessions from June 21 at the park.

Sessions will run on Monday afternoons from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. and enrollees will earn a Junior Naturalist patch and certification by attending at least five of the six sessions.

Topics in the series will include Bay ecology, birds at the park, reptiles and amphibians and more.

The program is for children age 9 to 14 and the program fee is $15. Registration is due by June 21.

The county Department of Recreation and Parks will sponsor a Summer Fishing Contest starting today through Aug. 30 at Downs Park.

Co-sponsored by Daubert's Sports Shop, the contest will feature a variety of categories, including the grand prize, which will net the winner a 15-foot surf rod and reel.

For an official entry form and details, stop by the park's gatehouse.

For more information on either program, call 222-6230.

Gunman robs restaurant

A man armed with a small handgun robbed a Wendy's restaurant in the 8100 block of Ritchie Highway Thursday night after ordering four employees to lie down on the floor.

County police said the man walked into the restaurant about 9:45 p.m. and ordered a worker to open the cash register.

The gunman took an undetermined amount of money, then ordered four workers to lie on the floor and demanded that the manager open the safe.

It was unclear from police whether the man took any money from the safe. No one was injured and police were seeking a suspect yesterday.
