The fairies are back for spring 2020!
Come visit our fairy homes! Each spring we migrate through the North Country on our way home for the summer. We live in the woods, where we spend our days bonding with birds, talking with trees, buzzing with bugs, and getting friendly with fungi. As you might guess, we've become expert naturalists. At any time between now and May 26th, find our homes using the clues below. This year, 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!
*visit https://www.natureupnorth.org/justmynature/thimble-hickory-and-blossom-dewdrop/ask-fairy-2020 after May 26th to see our answers!
Stone Valley Trailhead, Colton
Start down the trail and continue straight
You won’t have long to wait
Walk over the line of rocks and down the hill
To your left, you will see the waterfall spill
You will see a box saying register, please
Right next door, our home is nestled in a group of trees
Munter Hiking Trail, Potsdam
At 26 Maple Street, you’ll start your little stroll
The path will split into three before you reach your goal
To reach your journey’s end,
Continue straight around the bend
Look to the right and then you’ll see
Our toadstool home, next to a fallen tree
St. Lawrence University Cross-Country Woods Trail, Canton
The “Little River Nature” sign will send you on your way
Walk down the sloping hill and take the left pathway
As you amble, look to your left until you come to see
A group of trees, once three
The third was cut down, but don’t despair
Our paper birch home is nestled there
This is such a wonderful idea! Very creative. I am glad Nature Up North is able to continue this tradition even remotely.
