Northfield Mountain, StoryWalks and Scavenger Hunts

April 1 - April 27

Walk from page to page and enjoy the enchanting children’s story, The Salamander Room. A young boy’s imagination goes wild as he transforms his bedroom into a woodland paradise. Colorful, detailed paintings illustrate the salamander’s habitat needs. Our April StoryWalk® begins at the pond behind the Visitor Center. Listen for the “quacking” mating call of the wood frog and look for jelly-like clusters of frog and salamander eggs in the pond.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. This StoryWalk® is provided by FirstLight Power’s Northfield Mountain.

A Salamander’s World I Spy

Explore a salamander’s world in our new Salamander’s World I Spy!
