Middlesex Fells StoryWalk™ @ Greenwood Park (Across from Stone Zoo)
Apr 15 – Apr 30 all-day

itsspring

It’s Spring! by Linda Glaser is our next StoryWalk™. What a great way to combine literature, exercise, and family fun!

It’s Spring! celebrates the coming of spring and all that happens in our natural world during this important season. A child observes the arrival of spring and its effects on plants and animals.

The StoryWalk™ is a collaboration of the Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation, MA Department of Conservation and Recreation, Mass in Motion, Medford Family Network and the North Suburban Child and Family Resource Network.

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.

OurBigHome1stDay

Foster your child’s connection with nature as well as their literacy skills by participating in our StoryWalk™ in the Fells!

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.
