Exploring Massena

The mugginess and bugginess couldn't keep us inside! A small group of friends and I finally made it to the new Massena Nature Center to check out the interactive exhibits and beautiful walking trails. The reach of Tent caterpillars certainly respects no town boundaries, and we ran across them all the way from Canton to Massena. After the Nature Center, we spotted a mama goose and her goslings at the Louisville boat launch while we scouted local public access points for a fun water monitoring project that's in the works. We can't wait to visit again!
