Spring Fairy House Clues
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 13th, find our homes using the clues below and leave notes with your nature questions inside. Please also leave your first name and age, so we can address you personally when we reply!
*visit natureupnorth.org/askafairy after May 15th to see our answers!

Indian Creek Nature Center, Rensselaer Falls

Our house hides next to the moss-covered stone,
Once you find it write down what you wish to be known!
