Sippican Lands Trust brings back 'StoryWalk'

Jul 27, 2018

StoryWalk returns to Sippican Lands Trust’s Peirson Woods in August. This year’s StoryWalk features “Forest Bright, Forest Night,” written by Jennifer Ward and illustrated by Jamichael Henterly.

StoryWalk is a way for children and adults to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children's book are attached to wooden stakes, which are installed at Peirson Woods.

StoryWalk will be open from sunrise to sunset starting Wednesday, Aug.1, and ending Saturday, Sept. 1. As visitors stroll down the trail, they are directed to the next page in the story.

Peirson Woods is a 30-acre parcel of land with woodlands and wetlands. The property is home to many species of birds, including herons, winter buffleheads, and osprey.

Located at the head of Blankenship Cove, the property features a trail leading from Point Road to a viewing platform overlooking the head of the Cove. On a clear day, Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and the northern Elizabeth Islands can be seen.

The parking area for Peirson Woods is located just off of Point Road, approximately 1.4 miles south of the intersection of Route 6 and Point Road in Marion. Parking is available but limited.
