On Saturday May 9 we hiked at Strawberry Hill Nature Preserve. This 600 acre gem outside Fairfield preserves some critical habitat on the edge of the Michaux. Board President Kathy Serfass was our naturalist-guide for the hike, and we also hiked with Preserve neighbors and volunteers Dave and Linda Peters. We saw the section in which there was a recent fire…thankfully the fire company got it under control before more damage could be done. It was a great hike, but we learned that tick season is open and ready for business! Next hike is June 20…location to be announced.
