StoryWalks are fun, educational activities that place pages from children’s storybooks along local trails.

StoryWalk was created as a way for people of all ages to combine physical activity in a local, natural area with a story combining a love of two things: storytelling and walking.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg Hubbard Library.

StoryWalk: Acorn Was a Little Wild

Wednesday, March 8 for approximately one month (weather dependent)
Enniskillen Conservation Area, Turtle Trail
(7274 Holt Rd., Hampton)

Enjoy Acorn Was a Little Wild by Jen Arena and illustrated by Jessica Gibson while exploring the Turtle Trail at CLOCA's Enniskillen Conservation Area!

Acorn is a wild little thing with a passion for adventure. The first of his generation to jump off the tree, he gets a thrill out of everything life brings, from tumbling down a hill to feeling the rain pound on his shell. Nothing can keep Acorn down – not pesky squirrels or ending up in unexpected places. But even wild little acorns have to grow up sometime – and that may be the most exciting adventure of all!
