SOMERS — Hawthorn Hollow Nature Sanctuary and Arboretum, in partnership with the Kenosha Public Library, has once again opened its StoryWalk® trail.
The StoryWalk® program creates interpretive trails based on popular children’s books. This spring, follow book pages with a story that enhances your adventure through the forest.
In “Fletcher and the Springtime Blossoms,” the story follows Fletcher the rabbit as he warns his woodland friends of the impending snow! Except the “snow” is not what it seems … in the springtime, trees gain their leaves and some even form beautiful blossoms.
The story travels through Hawthorn Hollow on several trails, starting at the Old Mill Road trail and ending on the trillium trail, where blossoms and flowers will eventually bloom. This StoryWalk® experience will be available to read until June, when the summer book is installed.
The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vt., and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ferguson. StoryWalks® have been enjoyed in all 50 states and 13 countries, including Malaysia, Russia, Great Britain, Bermuda, and Pakistan. Thank you to the Kenosha Public Library for making this StoryWalk® possible!
Hawthorn Hollow, 880 Green Bay Road, is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. There is no admission fee. However, donations are graciously accepted. For more information about Hawthorn Hollow’s upcoming events, go to hawthornhollow.org.
