Northfield Mountain, StoryWalks and Scavenger Hunts

July 5, 2021 - July 31, 2021

Enjoy finding hidden animals and the lyrical rhyming text in Over in a Forest – Come and Take a Peek.

Walk from page to page along our forested trails as you read this delightful storybook. Children learn the ways of forest animals to the rhythm of “Over in the Meadow” as they leap like a squirrel and pounce like a fox. All of the featured woodland animals live in Massachusetts. Our July StoryWalk® begins at the pond behind the Visitors Center at Northfield Mountain.

New Fuller’s Pasture Quest!

Quests are educational treasure hunts that foster place-based education, stewardship, and outdoor fun. Designed for all ages, this self-directed quest leads you from clue to clue as you explore how New England’s landscape has changed over time.

Head to Northfield Mountain where your adventure begins! The quest is less than a mile in length along gentle terrain. Good luck!

Fullers’ Pasture: Begin outside Northfield Mountain’s Visitor Center where Quests are available next to the front doors on the upper level. GPS: 99 Millers Falls Road, Northfield, MA.

Fifty steps past the yellow gate, on your left you will see

Another evergreen, a red cedar tree.

Grayish-red flaky bark, short needle-like leaves

Its fragrant wood lining old chests under eaves

Educational in nature, follow each clue

At the end is a treasure stamp just for you!
