Family Self-Guided Story Walk at Housatonic Flats, Great Barrington

Hike the 1-mile trail and learn about animals!

WHERE/WHEN:
The story walk will be on display for a self-guided adventure from Thursday, September 10th – Sunday, October 4th (dawn to dusk) at Housatonic Flats.

What are some things we can learn about animals from the shape of their mouths, beaks, or bills? What can we infer about animals with sharp teeth compared to large, flat teeth? Are there any animals that don’t have mouths? In Animal Mouths, award-winning nature photographer and environmental educator Mary Holland shares fascinating animal mouths with readers of all ages.

While the audience of the book is 1st to 3rd grade, the content is great for all ages- even adults!
