Even on a cloudy day there was so much to do and see the the Lloyd A. Stage Nature Center. On the 100-Acre preserve within the City of Troy, we hiked the walking trails as squirrels, deer, birds all posed for photos, adding to the excitement of the adventure. The Maple trees were being tapped for syrup. Large windows in the interpretive center library allowed us to research while observing the outdoors. It was hard to believe we were only 2 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of suburban life.
