StoryWalk Opens at Nature Museum

Reading trail designed for children ages 2 to 6 

The Wildlife Education Center at the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum will host the opening weekend of its StoryWalk trail from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 10. The trail features pages from The Secret Life of the Woolly Bear Caterpillar, a book written by Laurence Pringle and illustrated by Joan Paley.

The center is located at 25 Boulevard in Cornwall-on-Hudson. StoryWalk was developed by the museum to allow children ages 2 to 6 to read their way with adult guidance through the Wildlife Education Center’s meadow trails.

The opening weekend will include crafts and snacks. At 1 p.m. Pringle will read and sign his book, while at 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. museum educators will show off woolly bear caterpillars. Guided walks on the trail will take place at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.

Admission to the center is $3, or free to members. StoryWalk will be open through the fall from noon to 4 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. For more information, call 845-534-5506 x204 or visit
