"Leaf Man" by Lois Ehlert
Our final Tale Trail of the season is a perfect book for fall. Leaf Man, by Lois Ehlert, is a colorful, creative look at leaves that she's collaged to create the story's characters and landscape. "A Leaf Man's got to go where the wind blows." Find out what he sees on his journey. Collect fallen leaves on your walk and create your own Leaf Man mask at the end!
The book pages lead you along our woodland trails to our Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom where several of our play spaces are open for kids to enjoy. Stop at the Tale Trail activity table where the kids can do a variety activity with leaves. The pavilion itself is closed off for now due to COVID-19.
Feel free to visit our other trails and walk the grass paths through the gardens while you’re here. You can also build Fairy Houses and Gnome Homes along any of our trails. You’re welcome to bring a picnic blanket and have a snack/lunch.
Please follow social distancing protocol if other guests are here. If you can’t avoid being briefly less than 6 feet from someone who did not come here with you, please put on your mask.
Visitors can walk our self-guided Tale Trails daily between 9 AM-6 PM. Admission is $5 per child; adults and infants are free. Put payment in the gray box on the Farm Stand porch and get instructions. Enter the number of people in your group in our Log Book.
