Successful Winter StoryWalk®

Successful Winter StoryWalk®

The winter self-guided StoryWalk® in the Middlesex Fells featured images from “Stranger in the Woods” by Carl R. Sams II & Jean Stoick, a fanciful tale about forest creatures experiencing curiosity and wonder when they encounter a snowman. The Dec. 24 walk began at Greenwood Park, across from the Stone Zoo, and wended along the Crystal Trail.

It was the eleventh walk done collaboratively by the Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation, MA Department of Conservation and Recreation, Malden CFCE, Mass in Motion, Medford Family Network and the North Suburban Child and Family Resource Network.  Seventy-eight families participated in the walk for a total of 274 people.  People came from 16 different MA communities.  The total for the eleven walks is 1,229 families and 3,959 people.  Our next walk will be during the April 2017 School Vacation Week.

 The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the KelloggHubbard Library for their work and inspiration. The StoryWalk® is designed to focus on the resources of the surrounding environment and bring small children out to the parks to enjoy the wonders of nature.

 Thank you for your support of these walks!
