Come join us for fun, safe, outdoor afternoon at the beach.  The Onset Bay Center is offering four StoryWalks®, in collaboration with the Wareham Coordinated Family and Community Engagement Committee, at Onset Beach and this is the THIRD in the spring series.  May’s story, “Fish on the Move,” is the story of the striped bass migration. Geared towards younger kids, this book is an easy read to get the whole family excited about fishing and animal migration in the spring.

The story will be set up in stations along Onset Beach where you and your family can drop-by and walk through at your own pace. Along your “migration”, the OBC staff and volunteers will provide tidbits about the local fish and provide different ways to explore this special place.  Afterwards you can try you hand at surf-casting from the beach! The StoryWalk® can be assessed in four different languages, English, Portuguese, Spanish, and Arabic.

Important Details: The starting point for the StoryWalk® at Onset Beach will be at the Onset Bay Center, located at 186 Onset Avenue. Parking is available at the Onset Pier, at this time. When you arrive, please check in with the staff at the beginning of the stations. Pre-registration is not required. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. We ask that all participants please wear a mask and maintain at least 6 feet of distance between your family group and other family groups. Please note: there may be a wait time as other families move through the stations.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
