DCR Spring Storywalk “A Salamander’s Room” @ Blue Hills Reservation
Apr 1 – May 31 all-day
DCR Spring Storywalk "A Salamander's Room" @ Blue Hills Reservation | Milton | Massachusetts | United States

Enjoy a Family Spring Storywalk® at Houghton’s Pond Playground. Visit A Salamander Room. Vernal pools and wetlands come alive in spring! Many salamanders and frogs are most active this time of year. Be on the lookout but please do not be tempted to take one home as the little boy in this story does. Read along and see all the things a salamander needs to live. Stroll through the pages of the book posted on the wooden fence at the playground. Add a unique literacy experience to your outdoor fun. Best for families with kids 3-8 years old. Enjoy a self-guided visit through the end of May at 840 Hillside Street in Milton. Co-sponsored by DCR and Milton Early Childhood Alliance.
