Nokomis’ Storybook Trail of Tails Reopens this Saturday at Waterman Center

The innovative Nokomis’ Trail of Tails storybook trail is back and better than ever. Girl Scout Troop 40514 and The Waterman Center would like to invite you to the grand reopening of our beloved storybook trail on Saturday, October 24 at 2:15 p.m. Bring your family, a blanket to sit on, and masks of course.

Girl Scouts Emily and Eleanora will be talking about their project and presenting book readings at the Opening of the trail. While this is an outdoor presentation, masks and social distancing are still required. Originally created by Girl Scout Troop 99 in 2009, Emily and Eleanora repaired, refurbished and revitalized every component for their Silver Award project. They remade and painted storybook characters, re-imagined the book boxes which hold laminated story books, and moved everything to a new location.

The event is subject to change due to circumstances and recommendations surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, so stay up to date by RSVPing on the Waterman Center Facebook event page. Families are of course welcome and encouraged to visit the trail any time.

Special Thanks to the following for helping to fund this entire project: Troop # 40514 Girl Scout Cookie Community Partners – Confection Connection in Owego , Originals in Owego, Gigi’s Place in Apalachin, River Rock Diner Owego, and Rossi Pizza in Johnson City.
