I would highly recommend a visit. The children's trail is just a small part of the preserve. We loved the bird and butterfly garden. The lilacs are in bloom right now, and the smell is heavenly. When Neil was in the planning stages of this project last spring there was a beaver in the pond. Not sure what his status is right now, but we saw deer and heard lots of birds during our short stay yesterday.

A lovely spring day should be spent outside. In order to comply with what yesterday's weather dictated, we took off for Fairview Farm, the nature preserve where Neil did his Eagle Scout project. We walked the children's trail that he prepared and found almost all in order. (We need to replace a couple of trail activity booklets that he'd made for the backpacks.)
