Family Hike: StoryWalk® at Rushton Woods Preserve
Meander through Rushton Woods Preserve’s trails (dawn to dusk) for a StoryWalk® with your friends and family. The children’s book “Animals in Winter” by Henrietta Bancroft and Richard G. Van Gelder will be posted along the trails to read and learn about how animals behave during the winter months. And keep your eyes peeled for a special holiday friend along the trail!
This is a self-guided experience and will begin at the Rushton Conservation Center (915 Delchester Road, Newtown Square, PA 19073). Upon registration, a trail map will be emailed and will also be available at the preserve kiosk. The StoryWalk® will be open from December 19 – December 26 and is suitable for all ages. Questions? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 Ms. Ferguson.
About The Book:
Have you ever seen a butterfly in the snow? Probably not. Butterflies can’t survive the cold weather, so when winter comes, many butterflies fly to warmer places. They migrate. Woodchucks don’t like the cold weather either, but they don’t migrate; they hibernate. Woodchucks sleep in their dens all winter long.
