Winter Story Walk!

Winter Story Walk!

Friends of the Fells is delighted to announce our third collaboration with the DCR, Medford Family Network, North Suburban Child and Family Resource Network, and Mass in Motion to offer a Story Walk™ in the Middlesex Fells Reservation!

From December 20th– January 4th, you are invited to participate in this self-led walk through the Fells featuring the book, “Stranger in the Woods” by Carl R. Sams & Jean Stoick. Find pages of this award winning book posted along the trail, and read about how all the animals of the forest react to finding a snowman in the woods! The walk will begin at Greenwood Park, in Stoneham (across from the Stone Zoo), and will continue along the Crystal Springs Trail in an easy, 1/3-mile loop. Note: on Google Maps, the Crystal Spring Trail is mislabeled as the “Virginia Wood Trail”.  We have asked them to correct it, but in the meantime, we suggest you rely on an official Friends of the Fells Map, available for free to our members and on our Merchandise page.

This is the perfect opportunity to get your kids enjoying the Fells in the winter, while also developing their literacy skills.  We hope to see you out there!

The StoryWalk™ Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
