Fall Feature Story Walk®

Saturday, October 12 – Sunday, October 27

Join DCR's Fall Feature Story Walk® this beautiful autumn season. Walk a trail, read a story, use your senses, and connect with your surroundings. Fall is a perfect time to tramp through the woods and enjoy the magic of reading together outdoors!

WHY DO LEAVES CHANGE COLOR?
Written by Betsy Maestro and illustrated by Loretta Krupinski

Come and participate in this self-guided walk for children and adults! Enjoy the gorgeous fall colors and learn why all our green leaves turn to orange, red, and yellow!

ABOUT THE TRAIL
Crystal Springs Trail at Greenwood Park (across from Stone Zoo) starts from the parking lot behind the granite wall. The trail is an easy walk - about ¼-mile - and CAN accommodate jogging strollers.

All Story Walk® events are open to the public, self-guided, run dawn to dusk, and are free of charge.

The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), Mass in Motion, the North Suburban Child & Family Resource Network, Medford Family Network, and the Friends of the Fells would like to acknowledge and thank the Story Walk® Project, created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg-Hubbard Library, for their work and inspiration.
