New Trails to Hike!
The Carpenter brothers , who own Northside Acres, have made 40 acres of their property available for public hiking. The property is located east of Bucyrus at 3229 SR 98, which is just east of the N&S Railroad tracks. Locally known as "Carpenter’s Bottom", the trails are well maintained and border the Sandusky River. If you go, please park southeast of their building and enter the bottom on that trail. You can hike during daylight hours only. Please respect the property and take your litter with you when you leave.
Nature Doesn’t Wait
Sometimes programs are not planned...they just happen randomly. Josh and Logan have Monarchs in various stages, including 8 adults that needed tagged and released. Eight kids and their parents were at the Nature Center in late August and hap-pened to be at the right place at the right time. Af-ter a brief discussion about Monarch’s, the butter-flies were tagged, and then released to the chant "Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go to Mexico!" Fun was had by all, kids parents, and of course Josh and Logan. Good luck butterflies!
