Sunday was Story Walk Day at Fitzgerald Lake!

book all wildlifeWhat a great afternoon at Fitzgerald Lake.  Kestrel Land Trust and Broadbrook Coalition sponsored a Story Walk for Kids of all ages. Joan Robb, Ally Sullivan and Kari Blood planned a wonderful walk with stories from “Over in the Forest, Come take a Peek” a children’s book by Marianne Berkes and Jill Dubin (see below for some of the illustrations that were put on posts).  There was face painting and then a wonderful storyteller, Rona Leventhal, entranced the kids with stories of wildlife.  See below for her rousing story of the Wide Mouth Frog.  Everyone had a wonderful time!  The stories are available for viewing all this week at the entrance to Fitz Lake.  Remember, click on pics to enlarge them!

About John Body

I live in Western Massachusetts, in the incredibly beautiful Connecticut River Valley. I've been hiking, kayaking, and tracking wildlife throughout the Valley with lots of photos and videos that people may like to see. Whenever I travel I also take my cameras just in case I see great scenery or wildlife. My passion is wildlife conservation so I try to attend wildlife workshops and land preservation events (Habitat, Habitat, Habitat!). When I get a chance, I videotape the experts, they're just so knowledgeable and inspiring. I hope you enjoy my posts.
