Ask a Fairy: Our Fairy Friends are Back!
We eagerly await the fall season, because with it comes apples season, vibrant fall colors, and of course - visiting fairies! Our woodland fairy friends will be visiting the North Country on their migration south for the winter from October 12th - 28th. You're invited to find their homes and leave notes with your nature questions inside. Please also leave your first name and age, so the fairies can address you personally when they reply. The faires' answers will be available after October 31st at: natureupnorth.org/askafairy
Fairies build their houses to blend in with the surroundings, so they can be tricky to find. Fortunately, they've left a set of clues to help you find them:
Red Sandstone Trail (south entrance)
Hannawa Falls, NY
With forest to the left, and the river to the right,
you'll be walking along, not a fairy in sight
but follow this path, past tables and signs,
and soon look to the right for a long laying pine
behind this massive tree trunk, laying long and low,
is our little birch home, the best of show.
The Nicandri Nature Center
We love every bird, bee and even bug,
And have many such friends here to visit and hug.
Find the Green trail, and head out on your way
Up past the meadow, what does this turkey sign say?
Turn on the trail, and a few paces on the left you'll see,
Our home in the woods, behind a big old ash tree!
This trail is so simple, and yet so sweet,
we crave water and woods, and the places they meet
After the bridge, go left if you will,
And follow the path on down the hill.
When the trail levels out, take the route to the right.
Soon you'll see our festive home, it's quite the sight!
