BATH – This spring and summer, Kennebec Estuary Land Trust plans to offer storytelling trails through the region. With the help of volunteers, members have designed storyboards that will serve as temporary exhibits at a number of its reserves.

Nature-themed stories and outdoor activities are available for children 6 and under. With an adult chaperone, young children can hike a trail, explore a preserve or visit the LOCAL garden while reading a children’s nature book one page at a time, according to a press release from the trust.

People can explore Green Point Reserve on Birch Point Road in West Bath while reading ‘Little Sap’ by Jan Hughes. This temporary installation will be in place from Saturday, May 21 at 10 a.m. to Friday, May 27 at 5 p.m.

Visitors can view the LOCAL garden at 61 Lemont Street in south Bath while reading Kate Messner’s ‘Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt’. Children will be able to explore the many types of vegetables, fruits and flowers while reading about what makes gardens grow.

This temporary installation will be in place from Sunday, June 19, 10 a.m. to Sunday, June 26, 5 p.m.

Families are welcome to use the picnic tables in the garden when visiting. Participants can visit each storytelling trail at any time of the day during their installation, from dawn to dusk.

For more information on each event, as well as the storytelling trail program as a whole, go to Closed shoes that can get wet and muddy are recommended. No registration is required, but photos of each tour are appreciated and can be sent to [email protected].
