Now that spring’s here, just what are you going to do about it? Sit inside and watch the Red Sox?

Not if L.L. Bean can help it. This weekend, the flagship store in Freeport is intent on refreshing your memory of all the things to do outdoors as winter melts away.

Saturday’s activities included a sleeping-bag sack-stuffing competition, catch-and-release fishing demos, a “tent city” to be explored inside and out, geocaching and map-and-compass workshops, and even demonstrations of fixing that flat tire on your bicycle.

You could wander over to a sea of colorful kayaks or learn something about wildlife on the Discovery Patio (today’s focus: owls).

The L.L. Bean Spring Sports Weekend continues today with outdoors experts standing by.
