The Story Walk™ program combines the benefits of physical activity, time outdoors in nature, literacy and family time by taking children’s books and posting them, in pieces, along a recreational path or hiking trail. Discover this winter’s feature: “Little Brother Moose” by Jame Kasperson and illustrated by Karlyn Holman. You can start the journey at the base of the Mountain and follow the pages along the Turtle Loop to the summit. Enjoy!
A Snowy Owl, an infrequent visitor to Maine, was seen on the summit of Mount A Friday, November 22nd throughout the day. They like open fields, shrubland and tundra for hunting. It perched atop the viewing platform for a few hours and was also seen on the western portion of the open summit. It is presumed to be a juvenile male and there have been other reports of snowy sightings in the northeast on the same day. The Mount A webcam was a big hit and was mentioned on a Maine eBIRD post that also explains reasons for a surge in sightings south of their traditional range. A good tip: "Most invasions involve young birds at the southern limits, and these are often stressed individuals. So please respect them and observe at a distance." Easy to do when they pose in front of a web cam!! Photo Credit: Denise Johnsonh
