Ask a Fairy: The Fairies Are Back!
We are SO excited to share that the fairies are back! As the leaves begin changing color and the air starts to cool, Thimble and Blossom will be making the long trip south for the winter. Through all of their woodland travels they’ve become great naturalists, talking with toads, playing with opossums, and singing with cicadas. Now, they’re here to answer any questions you may have! September 7th through October 12th, use the clues to find our homes on trails around the North Country! To help us and you stay safe and healthy, use your phone’s camera to scan the QR code on the sign next to our house. It will take you to a form where you can leave us your nature questions!
Heritage Park, Canton
Cross the bridge and then you’ll see
To the right another bridge there be
Follow that path it’s nice and bright
You’ll see a sign for a black willow on your right
Go down some stairs then up some more
From here you can see the river shore!
Then down the stairs one last time
To the left is our house, thanks to this rhyme!
Munter Trail, Potsdam
Start by the Stewart’s, then keep on the trail straight
With the river on your left pass through a vine covered gate
Count 7 big rocks all in a row
You’re almost there, don’t you know!
Just before the trail splits
Look to your left and you will see
Our lovely house hanging in a tree!
Nicandri Nature Center, Massena
Take the path to the right of the nature center.
See the pond down the hill, now the forest you'll enter!
Keep tight to the trail and you’ll cross a long bridge
Only a bit more to go, just a smidge!
By the outdoor classroom find a face in a tree
Pass by it on the small dirt path and soon you’ll see
On the ground right by beaver chewed logs
Our home! Stop here! Or you’ll end up with the frogs!
