Middlesex Fells StoryWalk®
Saturday, October 7 – Sunday, October 22, 2017
It’s Fall! by Linda Glaser is the next book for our collaborative StoryWalk® from Saturday, October 7 through Sunday, October 22. The book brings out all the colors and beauty of the fall season. Skip and swoosh through the leaves, as red, orange, yellow, gold and brown leaves fall down around us. A marvelous way to experience the colors and textures of fall, explore the wonders of autumn, including the animal life, the plant life, and the weather of the season!
The walk begins 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. Foster your child’s connection with nature as well as their literacy skills by participating in our StoryWalk® in the Fells! This project is a collaboration of Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation, Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, Malden Coordinated Family and Community Engagement, Mass in Motion, Medford Family Network and North Suburban Child and Family Resource Network.
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.
