Story Walk at Grey Rocks Conservaton Area 178 North Shore Rd, Hebron, NH
August 27 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until October 2, 2022
Hebron–Newfound Lake Region Association invites you to get outside and read! Join us at Grey Rocks Conservation Area from August 27 through October 2 as StoryWalk® returns with “Outside In” written by Deborah Underwood and illustrated by Cindy Derby. “Outside In” looks at the many ways that we can interact with nature, both inside buildings and outdoors. As visitors walk through the story, they will experience the ecosystems around them and be reminded that nature doesn’t always wait at the door- often it comes inside in new forms or finds ways to draw us back outside again.
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 “Outside In” 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.
