StoryWalks™ are a great way to get your family outdoors. This structured, self-guided walk leads you along the easy-to-follow paths at Hawk Rise while you read along to a story page-by-page. If you have never walked at Hawk Rise, or feel like you don’t know what to do when you get there, this makes for a great first visit! Hawk Rise Sanctuary is open from sunrise to sunset daily. Bring a picnic and enjoy this urban gem!
The StoryWalk™ concept was created by Anne Ferguson and developed in cooperation with the Kellogg Hubbard Library and the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition.

Grab a flashlight and join us for a nighttime adventure at Hawk Rise Sanctuary! We will use our senses to explore the park and enjoy nature’s version of “nightlife.” What birds are singing as the sun goes down? Will we catch a glimpse of one of Hawk Rise’s many nocturnal residents as they are beginning their hunt for breakfast? You never know what will happen! This program is appropriate for families with children of all ages. Wear sturdy shoes and bring a flashlight if desired.
