Welcome to the StoryWalk® Project
The New Marlborough Town Library and New Marlborough Land Trust welcome you to join in on their first StoryWalk®, Saturday July 3rd to Monday July 5th.  Along the Land Trust trails at the Goodnow Preserve you will find the pages of Possum and the Peeper, a storybook written and illustrated by Anne Hunter. A StoryWalk® is an inventive activity that 50 states and 13 countries have participated in. It’s a fun, family-friendly event to get your kids excited to partake in both nature and literature. After signing our guest book at the kiosk in the Land Trust parking lot, follow the arrows to begin your adventure. The pages of our storybook will be laminated and staked from one end of the trail to the other, leading you to the end of the story! On your way, keep your eyes peeled for a hidden clue!

WHAT:
StoryWalk®
at the Goodnow Preserve, a self-guided walk on the Lower Carroll Mill loop trail (roughly 1.9 miles) while reading the pages of Possum and the Peeper

WHEN:

WHERE:
