StoryWalk returns to Sippican Lands Trust’s Peirson Woods this August in Marion. This year’s StoryWalk at Peirson Woods features “Forest Bright, Forest Night” written by Jennifer Ward and illustrated by Jamichael Henterly.
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 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.
StoryWalk at Peirson Woods will be open from sunrise to sunset starting Wednesday, August 1 and ending Saturday, September 1. Adults and kids of all ages are welcome and for further information about the StoryWalk® at Peirson Woods visit www.sippicanlandstrust.org or call Sippican Lands Trust at 508-748-3080.
