Get a dose of nature in Lacona on Aug. 3

Trail in Lacona.

LACONA - From 10 a.m.-noon on Saturday, Aug. 3, the Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust (THLT) will lead an easy morning nature walk at a privately owned forest property in Lacona. Linda Fellers, amateur photographer, nature enthusiast and land trust supporter, has offered to host the group on her 12-acre property’s trail system, at 177 Ballou Road, Lacona.

The outing is a free, family-friendly, informal guided hike in the woods on cleared trails.

As participants walk the trail loop, they’ll stop to explore the sights and sounds along the way.

The trail travels through a mix of forest and small clearings, with wooden bridges crossing a small stream. Make sure and dress for the weather, wear sturdy walking shoes (waterproof boots if it has been wet), and bring along tick and bug repellent. THTLT will have some water and snacks on hand.

The Fellers property is located at 177 Ballou Road, Lacona. Ballou Road runs between Bremm Road to the south, and County Route 15 to the north. Look for the Tug Hill Tomorrow sign at the end of the driveway.
