The Fall Story Walk™ is Posted!

fall storywalk

The Story Walk™ program combines the benefits of physical activity, time outdoors in nature, literacy and family time by taking children’s books and posting them, in pieces, along a recreational path or hiking trail. Discover this fall's feature: "Gobble Gobble", written and illustrated by Cathryn Falwell. Then be sure to check back for a NEW winter feature: "A Porcupine's Promenade", by local author Lyn Smith and illustrated by Jamie Hogan.  To find the story start at the base parking lot (where Mountain Road meets Ring Trail) and follow the pages along the western side of the Ring Trail (left at first fork) to Witch Hazel Trail and finish near the summit. Enjoy! 


Making Tracks with Wildlife: Saturday, January 21st

animal tracks2smallsizeWhat happened here? Whose footprint is that? Join Center for Wildlife and Mt. A to answer these questions and more! Following a live animal demonstration, we will take a hike and learn how to identify the tracks of our local wildlife as well as the evidence of several telltale wildlife encounters. By recognizing the wing-prints of an owl catching their prey, or the midden left over by a grey squirrel’s snack, we can learn so much about our wildlife’s winter habits! We will also practice making our own tracks, and seeing how our actions look in the fresh fallen snow. Open to all ages; moderate hike; $7 suggested donation. 

When: Saturday, January 21st, 10:00am-12:00pm
Where: Mount A Learning Lodge
Suggested Donation: $7/person
