Event Description

Come out the Lussier Family Heritage Center prairie trails for a self-guided StoryWalk® featuring Count Down to Fall by Fran Hawk. The book starts just past the Prairie Learning Center sign (behind the Pollinator Garden).

The summer days get a little colder; the leaves turn from green to orange and red. Fall must be on the way, and while you unpack sweaters and scarves, the animals frolic outside in the crisp autumn air beneath a wide blue sky. In Fran Hawk’s Count Down to Fall, watch the falling leaves tumble all around. The vibrant and detailed illustrations of Sherry Neidigh capture the majesty of the maple, the oak, the linden, and more. Critters play in the time of changing seasons, and remind us that the changes of the earth affect us all—animals and humans alike!

Note: Due to COVID-19 the Lussier Family Heritage Center bathroom facilities are closed. A porta-let is available for use near the campground.
