Upcoming Storybook Trails in West Bath, Bath
With the help of volunteers, the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust has designed storyboards that will serve as temporary exhibits at a number of its reserves this spring and summer.
The nature-themed stories and outdoor activities are aimed at children aged 6 and under. With an accompanying adult, young children can hike a trail, explore a preserve, or visit a LOCAL garden while reading one page at a time from a children’s nature book.
Participants can visit each storytelling trail at any time of the day during their installation, from dawn to dusk. Closed shoes that can get wet and muddy are recommended.
Jan Hughes’ ‘Little Sap’, a story about saplings and the trials and tribulations of growing up, will be on display at the Green Point Preserve in West Bath from Saturday, May 21 at 10 a.m. to Friday, May 27 at 5 p.m.
Kate Messner’s ‘Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt’, a story about what makes gardens grow, will be on display at LOCAL Garden in Bath from Sunday June 19 at 10 a.m. to Sunday June 26 at 5 p.m.
