The afternoon of Tuesday, September 19, 2023, we held our fist book hike, celebrating J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan. This program was done in partnership with the North Smithfield Land Trust. We were able to create Neverland in their Booth Pond Conservation Area. While enjoy nature, families were able to "visit" areas from the novel and hear excerpt of the original read aloud at each location. While walking the trails we discovered a variety of mushrooms, acorns, rocks, pineconne, a beaver lodge, and the beaver dam. Kids were also able to climb rocks, jump small creeks (thanks to all the rain) and explore a variety of puddle sizes. Everyone had a good time.
If this is something your family might be interested in doing, we will be holding another walk on Friday, October 20th at 10:30 AM. Visit our events page to register. Can't make this one, we'll be planning another for fall 2024. Happy Reading! Happy Hiking!
