Ask A Fairy: The Fairies Are Back Fall 2022
Exciting news from the forests! Thimble and Blossom, our favorite migratory fairy naturalists, are back in the North Country! In the fall they like to take a break from flying and glide around on falling leaves, forage for berries and seeds with chipmunks, and enjoy a warm cup of acorn soup! Through all of their woodland travels they’ve become excellent naturalists, and are now here to answer any questions you may have! Between October 3rd and November 1st, use the clues to find their homes on trails around the North Country. Once you find their homes, 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!
Lampson Falls (Clare)
Pass by the yellow gate and trod down the forests leaf-covered floor
Through pine, beech, maple, and more
Keep going through the “trees with the bright orange spots” zone
On the edge of a small bend stands a tall white pine alone
Just to the right you’ll see our home
Sitting on top of a mossy log that’s turning to loam
If you reach the trail register you’ve missed the spot
Turn back to find us, we love to talk a lot!
And after you stop by for a short stay
Make sure you check out the waterfall further along the way!
Indian Creek Nature Center (Rensselaer Falls)
Head to the trailhead and read about the critters that abound
Before taking a gander towards the Boardwalk Trail to see where we’re found
Appreciate the trees and undergrowth along the way
Listen for birds and wildlife, they have a lot to say
But wait! Right before you hit the trail junction that leads this way and that
Look to your left, there’s our house, stop for a chat!
