WHEN/WHERE: In the Woods: Who’s Been Here? by Lindsay Barrett George will be on display for a self-guided adventure from Saturday, July 2 – Sunday, July 24 (dawn to dusk) at The Boulders reserve in Dalton.
The story follows siblings Cammy and William who don’t see any wildlife as they walk through the woods, yet there are signs everywhere that animals have been around. Help these young nature lovers and find the clues — an empty nest, a fallen branch with the bark gnawed off, bleached bones by a cave, and more — and join in guessing, “Who’s been here?”
While the audience of the book is 4-8-year-olds, the content is great for all ages- even adults!
To the trailhead parking area on Gulf Road, Dalton: take routes 8/9 east from the center of Pittsfield. Take a left onto Park Avenue in Dalton, past Craneville School. Take a left onto Gulf Road. Park at the pull-off on the left, opposite the parking for the Appalachian Trail. We do not recommend taking Gulf Road from Lanesboro; this is a very rough, seasonal dirt road.
