Short Hike Ends with Homemade Picture Book

Thirty eager participants met at the River Bend Visitor Center in Uxbridge to join park staff and special guest Marjorie Turner Hollman and enjoy a nature discovery walk to the Blackstone River. The weather cooperated, and participants for this Saturday morning family program were encouraged to explore to find ideas to create a nature story.
 
The walk itself was easy--less than a mile, all on field paths. Children ages 3 and older were invited, along with siblings. Following the walk, the group gathered in the Visitor Center to draw or write down their discoveries and create their own book. Children and adult teams worked together to write the narrative.
 
The Visitor Center is located at 287 Oak St Uxbridge MA 01569. All supplies were provided for this free event which was co-sponsored by Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and the Blackstone Valley National Heritage Corridor. For more information on the River Bend Farm Visitor Center (Tel: 508-278-7604) and Blackstone Valley National Heritage Corridor (Tel: (508) 234-4242), call or visit https://www.blackstoneheritagecorridor.org. Both organizations also have Facebook pages.
