Second-graders from Lanigan Elementary School studied plants and animals in their natural habitat during a recent field trip to Beaver Lake Nature Center.
The students were given guided and self-guided tours of the trails and displays in the center. They were able to spot a wide variety of animals, insects, reptiles and more during their day-long trip and enjoyed the many signposts detailing unique natural wonders along the trails and at the water’s edge.

Editor’s note: This is the ninth installment of stories about Fulton Families. The monthly series tells the stories of families that have either lived in Fulton for ages or perhaps only a short while — but the common bond will be they love the city and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. If you know of a family we should highlight, please email Ashley M. Casey, Valley News assistant editor, at email@example.com.

“Can’t take the farm out of a country boy.”
That’s what Doug Hudson says about staying close to his roots.
Doug, who owns Hudsons’ Dairy, left Fulton only long enough to go to college. He and his three brothers, Dan, Eric and David, all returned to the city — or, more accurately, just outside it — to be close to their parents and help out on the farm in Granby.
Their sister, Holli Bacon, is the only one of Henry and Beverly Hudson’s children who moved out of Fulton. She now lives in Wethersfield, Connecticut.
“We’re lucky all the boys are around us,” Beverly says.
Through the Hudsons’ dairy business, community connections and deep roots, it seems that Fulton is lucky to have them around.
