Event details

This ongoing program runs from Tuesday, Dec. 26, to Tuesday, Jan. 9. Preserve hours are 8 a.m. to sunset.

Enjoy the book “Best in Snow” by April Pulley Sayre along the Four Rivers Story Trail. This non-fiction picture book has stunning images and minimal text. Read the story along the trail and see for yourself the creatures that are active in winter. At each stop, there will be one to two pages to read. Compare the beautifully illustrated snow-filled pages to the wintery wilderness around you. This story is appropriate for all ages.
