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 spring's feature: "In A Nutshell" by Joseph Anthony and illustrated by Cris Arbo. Its a great way to break in those new boots in this beautiful spring weather!
To find the story start at the base parking lot (where Mountain Road meets Ring Trail) and follow the pages along the western side of the Ring Trail (left at first fork) to Witch Hazel Trail and finish near the summit. Enjoy!
Shed that winter jacket, feel the warmth of the sun, smell the emerging flowers, watch those critters scurry and listen to their calls. Join educators and ambassadors as you tour the baby bird room at the Center for Wildlife, then learn about local wildlife including native birds and how to identify them in the wild. Finally, test your new skills on a hike around the trails at Mount Agamenticus as we search for birds and other indicators of the changing season. Open to all ages, moderate hike; $7 suggested donation.
