Story Walk at Peirson Woods

When: Starting the second week of February
Time: Dawn to dusk
Where: Peirson Woods
Host: Sippican Lands Trust, Tri-town Against Racism (TTAR)

SLT and TTAR present New York Times bestseller, A Day with No Words, written by Tiffany Hammond, an autistic mother of two autistic boys.  The book invites readers into the life of an autistic family, who communicate just as the child does, without spoken language. The illustrations by Kate Cosgrove show how expression can come from many types of perspectives and brains.

Pierson Woods is about 1 mile down Point Road on the right, if coming from the intersection with Route 6 (just after Allens Point Road) and is open from dawn to dusk.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.

Tidepooling at Brainard Marsh: Winter Wonders

When: Saturday, February 24th
Time: 1:15 PM - 2:30 PM
Where: Brainard Marsh
Host: Sippican Lands Trust

Join SLT and Dr. Carolyn Tepolt on our seasonal visit to Brainard Marsh and its tidepool critters. Bring your curiosity and shoes that can get wet! This event is kid-friendly.

This month, we'll be checking out the small creatures living on the shore in the winter. (It might be cold, but that just means the crabs will be slower!) Flip rocks, look for shells on the beach, look for seals in the water. This will be the first of a series of tidepooling outings in 2024, to explore life in the intertidal and how it changes over the seasons.
