The second location on our Labor Day/Anniversary day out yesterday was to the wonderfully named, "Ooms Conservation Area at Sutherland Pond".
It's a fairly small, but well kept and rather beautiful preserve near Chatham NY.
The highlight for the kids was trying out their butterfly/fishing nets that they were given at the wedding. They were more successful in the water - where they caught (temporarily) frogs, small fish, huge bullfrog tadpoles and some water beetles.
It turned what would in any case have been a nice hike into a big hit for them.
