Newfound Lake Region Association invites you to get outside and read! Join us at Grey Rocks Conservation Area from August 25 through October 1 as StoryWalk® returns with “Bear Came Along” written by Richard T. Morris and illustrated by LeUyen Pham. “Bear Came Along” follows the journey of Bear and his growing band of friends as they have a big adventure on the River. As visitors walk the Floodplain Loop Trail, the story moves downstream and the animal adventurers learn how they are connected to each other and the larger community.
Along with the StoryWalk®, visitors can enjoy more trails with scenic views of the Cockermouth River and Hebron Marsh, unpack a picnic in the picnic area, throw in a line at the fishing alcoves, or even launch a kayak or canoe at the non-motorized boat launch. NLRA maintains Grey Rocks Conservation Area as a place for people and wildlife alike. Wildlife is abundant, with bald eagles, tadpoles, turtles, and loons being a common sight. NLRA has carefully transformed the once barren landscape into an array of natural gardens, providing color from both the flowers and the butterflies that frequent them.
The “Bear Came Along” StoryWalk® , along with other family programs and events, is part of NLRA’s initiative to encourage residents and visitors to enjoy the natural beauty around them, learn more about the environment and how to protect it, and fall in love with the Newfound Watershed. By connecting the people of Newfound to the wonders around them, NLRA works to inspire the next generation of stewards and fulfill the mission of protecting Newfound Lake and its watershed. Learn more about NLRA including other upcoming events at NewfoundLake.org.
