SYRACUSE — Dozens of area residents took advantage of the delightful weather on Saturday afternoon to participate in the Wawasee Area Conservancy Foundation’s Falltastic Trail Walk. The event also welcomed visitors on Sunday afternoon under somewhat less ideal weather conditions.
The open house was offered by volunteers at the WACF to introduce people to the walking trails available to the public, as well as to educate them on how the fall and winter seasons contribute to lake quality. Visitors also learned what plants and animals do to prepare for the winter. As an added bonus, those who attended were treated to cider and donuts in front of the outdoor fireplace located in the Ruddell Pavilion onsite.
According to WACF volunteer Pam Schumm, the trails at the Levinson-LaBrosse Lakes & Wetlands Education Center, located at 11586 N. State Road 13 in Syracuse, are open to the public year-round and free of charge. Each of the trails, which include a total of over three miles of groomed trails on the WACF’s 40 acres, offers a unique opportunity to explore the wetlands area of the area located on the western shore of Lake Wawasee. rokettube porno tecavüz porno eşcinsel porno toplu sikiş anal porno
“We want to teach people what happens to organisms in the wetlands and how they get ready for winter,” said Schumm. “Many people don’t know what we have to offer and this event is an opportunity to showcase our trails and what we do at the WACF.”
Crown Point residents John and Barbara Sass, who also own a cottage in Oakwood, were two of the many people who visited the trails over the weekend.
“We received a letter from the WACF about this event and were reminded this week when we read a copy of the newspaper,” said John Sass.
Barbara Sass added that although they had been past the WACF many times and have attended the group’s annual meetings, but they had never explored the trails. “We decided to take advantage of the open house and the day to visit the grounds,” she said. “It is beautiful!”
