Summertime Story Walk

Posted by | June 28, 2022 | Filed under: Program Activities

The summer solstice last week brought a new children's book to the Reserve's story walk trail! Until the autumnal equinox in September, the pages of Common Critters: The Wildlife in Your Neighborhood with poems by Pat Brisson and pictures by Dan Tavis will adorn sign posts along the Saw-whet Owl Trail, Laird-Norton Trail, and Farley Connector for a round-trip distance of about a mile.

Featured animals along the walk include the crow, earthworm, robin, mourning dove, garden slug, honeybee, ant, caterpillar, cabbage white butterfly, ladybug, praying mantis, housefly, spider, squirrel, skunk, and cricket. The poems are fun and silly, accompanied by whimsical watercolors of each critter in its environment. Below are a couple of pages to whet your appetite!
