Songs & Flowers at Fugate

Looking for some outdoors exposure that can take you beyond what you can find in your backyard? How about a little communing with Nature – strolling through a natural land scape of trees, bushes, grasses, wild flowers and open spaces complete with a bubbling brook and a known habitat of several species of wild life? Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! No – just kidding, that’s from the Wizard of Oz, and it only works with a vivid imagination but, in this place of which we speak you can make it work.
The place where this natural serenity can be found is Fugate Woods which is just a bit north-east of Fairbury. For you folks who would like some insight into the intricacies of this natural “wonder land” there are some guided hikes available that have been poetically named “Morning on Songs at Dawn Trail” and you can make your way along some of the Parks trails with a commentator that will provide some interesting information about the sights along the way.
If you like casual exercise in a robust natural setting come on out and take advantage of this outdoors walking seminar and see if there is maybe a little more to appreciate than you might have thought. The guided hikes start at the main entrance of the Park on 1000 Road at 9:00am on May 7th, 10th and 14th so go give it a “look see” – the blue bells are blooming along with a multitude of other wild flowers! Fugate Woods is also open to the public from dawn to dusk every day and you can visit at your leisure – who knows what your imagination might conjure up–!!
