A big-hearted thanks to all those who tried the Hanover Conservancy “Love of Nature Trail Adventure” this winter. You demonstrated how much you Love Nature!
More than 225 folks downloaded a handout or picked one up from the trailhead kiosks, and the 60 tree cookies, decorated by children in the Kids-After-School-Time program, lasted a full month despite some very blustery conditions. If you completed the hikes and deciphered the messages but did not yet request a sticker, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Answers to the coded messages from each trail:
Mink Brook Nature Preserve: Go green and drink clean
Balch Hill Natural Area: Breathe in & thank a tree
Hayes Farm Park and King Bird Sanctuary: Adopt the pace of nature [:her secret is patience. – Ralph Waldo Emerson]
Stay tuned for more fun adventures and challenges this spring and summer!
