Read a family-friendly book while walking through the woods. Follow the illustrated signs along the trail as they tell a tale that connects you to your natural surroundings. The free 1-mile story trail starts from the Boothbay Region Land Trust’s (BRLT) Oak Point Farm parking lot kiosk and can be completed at your own pace and on your own time.
The current story trail features the read-aloud book “Animals in Winter,” written by Henrietta Bancroft and Richard G. Van Gelder with illustrations by Helen K. Davie.
Winter is coming, and the animals are preparing: Some birds, bats, and butterflies migrate; other animals hibernate. The squirrel and pika gather food and store it; mice, deer, rabbits, and the handsome red fox forage and hunt all winter long. Discover how animals survive winter in this beautifully illustrated book.
The story trail at Oak Point Farm is open year-round during daylight hours, with a new book posted every four to five weeks. Oak Point Farm is located at 60 Samoset Road, Boothbay Harbor.
