Sippican Lands Trust’s Summer StoryWalk at Peirson Woods features Flying Deep written by Michelle Cusolito and illustrated by Nicole Wong. Flying Deep will be displayed at the Peirson Woods property from Monday, July 15 to Thursday, August 15.
A special “Meet the Author” event will be held on Monday,July 22at 2:00 pm at Peirson Woods. Michelle Cusolito, author of Flying Deep, will read her book as children and adults of all ages experience this story strolling through the woods of Marion. Flying Deep tells the story of the deep-sea submersible, Alvin, and its underwater adventures in the great depths of the ocean. Kirkus Reviews describes Flying Deep as “an appealing, exhilarating, and informative vicarious journey of discovery.” Readers can saunter through Peirson Woods going from page to page as Alvin descends into new depths.
StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children — and adults! — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children’s book are attached to wooden stakes, which are installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll down the trail, you’re directed to the next page in the story.
Peirson Woods is a 30-acre parcel of land with woodlands and wetlands including a vibrant salt marsh. The property is home to numerous species of birds including herons, winter buffleheads and osprey. Located at the head of Blankenship Cove, this property features a trail leading from Point Road to a viewing platform overlooking the head of the Cove. On a clear winter day, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and the northern Elizabeth Islands can be seen.
The parking area for Peirson Woods is located just off of Point Road approximately 1.4 miles south of the intersection of Route 6 (Wareham Road) and Point Road in Marion. Parking is very limited so please be careful when parking your vehicle along Point Road.
