Learn “Why Do Leaves Change Color?” on the Fells StoryWalk


This is a press release from Friends of the Fells.

Middlesex Fells StoryWalk® Saturday, October 8, 2016 – Sunday, October 23, 2016

“Why Do Leaves Change Color?” by Betsy Maestro is our next StoryWalk®. What a great way to combine literature, exercise, and family fun! 

The walk is self-guided and open from dawn to dusk. “Why Do Leaves Change Color” explains what happens to leaves in autumn and includes detailed pictures of leaves in different sizes, shapes, and colors and a list of activities that kids can do with leaves. Foster your child’s connection with nature as well as their literacy skills by participating in our StoryWalk® in the Fells!

The walk begins at Greenwood Park, in Stoneham (across from the Stone Zoo), and will continue along the Crystal Springs Trail in an easy, 1/3-mile loop.

The StoryWalk® is a collaboration of the Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation, MA Department of Conservation and Recreation, Mass in Motion, Medford Family Network and the North Suburban Child and Family Resource Network.  

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