Our friend and master naturalist Beth Sullivan featured her Trailside Tuesday experience in Avalonia’s May 8th blog posting: http://avaloniaetrails.blogspot.com/2017/05/outdoor-explorations-are-best-education.html .
Be sure to explore the Avalonia website to learn more about the region’s natural areas. Beth Sullivan and Kathleen Smith have cooperated to design the Hike and Seek Scavenger Hunt program (http://avalonialandconservancy.org/hike-and-seek/), which is a spark to get families outdoors together. My boys and I went on our first Hike and Seek adventure and found a rookery…an active nesting colony for herons. Happy hiking!
