Each month through December, South Berkshire Kids and The Mount welcome the community to enjoy a Storywalk — read a picture book and meander a path through the woods. Today they will present Animals in Winter by Richard G. Gelder & Helen K. Davie.

Have you ever seen a butterfly in the snow? Probably not. Butterflies can’t survive cold weather, so when winter comes, many butterflies fly to warmer places. They migrate.

Woodchucks don’t like cold weather either, but they don’t migrate; they hibernate. Woodchucks sleep in their dens all winter long. How do these and other animals handle the cold and snow of winter?

All of the Storywalk community days are free, just stop at the admission booth before you head in to the walk. The Mount’s paths have some uneven terrain and are not always suitable for strollers or people with accessibility concerns.

The Mount is a Massachusetts Cultural Council UP designated organization welcoming participants of all disabilities. They invite anyone to call and talk with them about any accommodations you may need to join fully in this event.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
