It is almost SPRING! This is a time when wildlife are restless and on the move! Join Center for Wildlife educators and live animal ambassadors for a discussion about what our local wildlife is doing this time of year, including migrating, breeding, and nesting! Following the program, learn to identify the sounds and signs of our local wildlife’s springtime shenanigans on a hike around Mt. A! Open to all ages; moderate hike.
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 winter's feature: "A Porcupine's Promenade" a new book by local author Lyn Smith and illustrated by Jamie Hogan. Its a great way to break in those new boots, snow shoes, cross country skis, crampons and other winter gear!
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!
