Pictures: Wadsworth Falls Nature Tour
Naturalist Lucy Meigs of Durham led a tree identification hike at Wadsworth Falls State Park in Middlefield on Monday. Meigs started the grant-funded organization Everyone Outside three years ago to connect children and adults with the natural world. "If they just connect with it, have fun with it, that's the most correlated with environmental stewardship later on," said Meigs, who is bringing her expertise along with some small amphibians to Story Hour at the Durham Farmer's Market on June 20, starting at 4:00 p.m.
