Rabbits and Raindrops program aimed at children ages 2-6
Saturday, July 6, and Sunday, July 7, from noon to 4 p.m., the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum, in partnership with the Cornwall Public Library, will be hosting the opening weekend of Story Walk featuring Rabbits and Raindrops by Jim Arnosky at the Museum’s Wildlife Education Center, 25 Boulevard, Cornwall-on-Hudson.
Story Walk is a way for children and adults to enjoy reading while being outdoors. Story Walks have been installed in 45 states and four countries and were created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vt. The museum and library have chosen this Story Walk especially for children 2-6 with an adult or older child who will join them as they read their way along the meadow trails at the Wildlife Education Center.
“We are very excited about this program,” said Pam Golben, director of the Wildlife Education Center. “Jim Arnosky’s graceful water colors and simple text will delight children.”
The celebratory opening weekend will include crafts and snacks for children, Meet the Rabbit presentations at 1 and 2:30 p.m. and guided story walks at 1:30 and 3 p.m. Entry to Story Walk is included with the general admission of $3 at the Wildlife Education Center. Admission is free for museum members. After opening weekend the Story Walk will be open through the fall as part of the ongoing activities at the Wildlife Education Center.
The center is open Friday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. For more information go to hhnaturemuseum.org.
