StoryWalk Kickoff - Saturdy, Oct. 11
Celebrate fall and the with a StoryWalk on the Haystack Mountain Trail featuring children’s book The Woodcutter and the Most Beautiful Tree by Robb N. Johnston. Families will walk along a one-mile trail as Audrey O’Clair makes this beautifully illustrated story about an unlikely friendship between a woodcutter and a tree come alive. Views from the top of Haystack Mountain are sure to be lovely during the peak of fall color!
A StoryWalk features popular children’s books mounted on sign posts along local public access trails. This event combines love of outdoors, physical activity, family togetherness and literacy development. The signs and story will remain up through the November; the seventeen elegant wooden sign posts were locally crafted by Jim Macdonald. For more information see the SWLA (Sheepscot Wellspring Land Alliance) website.
The Haystack Mountain Trail is one mile and climbs 830 feet above sea level. The trailhead begins behind the Walker School Ball Field. The loop trail takes you to beautiful views surrounded by blueberry barrens at the top.
The StoryWalk is made possible with generous funding from RSU #3 and sponsored by the Sheepscott Wellspring Land Alliance (SWLA).
