Family Self-Guided Story Walk at the Hoosac Range Trail, North Adams

Hike the 1.5 mile Sunset Rock Loop and enjoy the fun story of a young fox!

The story walk will be on display for a self-guided adventure from Saturday, October 10th – Sunday, November 1st (dawn to dusk) at the Hoosac Range.

Ferdinand Fox’s First Summer by Mary Holland is a photographic journal of a red fox as he explores the world around him during the first few months of his life. He’s about a month old when he first comes out of the den. Watch as he learns to hunt through play and by using his senses. See the changes as he grows from a young kit to a young fox. After all, by the next summer, he’ll have kits of his own! Naturalist photographer and environmental educator Mary Holland has captured Ferdinand Fox’s First Summer in a way that is sure to grab children’s hearts.

While the audience of the book is 1st to 2nd grade, the content is great for all ages- even adults!
