10:00 AM


Ellis Hollow Nature Preserve – town of Dryden


No registration required  — free and open to the public. Except in the case of extreme weather, walks go rain or shine. Please check our Facebook page or this web page for updates.


Join us for Story Walk on Friday, June 15 at our Ellis Hollow Nature Preserve. Valerie Akers, founder of Corner of the Sky preschool, will guide families on a mellow walk through the woods, stopping along the path to read Old Elm Speaks: Tree Poems by Kristine O’Connell George. Bonus: families who attend the kickoff walk will receive a free copy of the book to bring home (while supplies last).

Story Walk encourages childhood literacy and an early love of nature.  For the walk, the book’s pages are individually laminated, grouped into small sections, and placed along the trail. The story will be installed at the Ellis Hollow Nature Preserve through the summer…so stop by to take a self-guided reading adventure anytime you want!


From Ithaca, follow Ellis Hollow Road 2.5 miles past East Hill Shopping Plaza. Turn left on Genung Road, then right on Ellis Hollow Creek Road. Preserve entrance is located 0.2 miles past intersection, on left side of road.
