Fall StoryWalk® “Why the Leaves Change Color” by Betsy Maestro Saturday, Oct. 8 – Sunday, October 23
The walk is self-guided and open from dawn to dusk. What a great way to combine literature, exercise, and family fun! “Why the Leaves Change Color” explains what happens to leaves in autumn and includes detailed pictures of leaves in different sizes, shapes, and colors and a list of activities that kids can do with leaves. 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. Be sure to sign in at the Kiosk near the parking lot.
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, Malden CFCE, and the 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.
