Take Part in StoryWalk! Get outside and stretch your legs and your mind with fun stories you’ll love.
StoryWalk® is a fun idea to get communities outside and reading. Each month, we will put new nature-themed children’s stories along trails in different parks. Stories will all be nature-themed and fun to read! Bring your whole family out to hike and read a page of the story every few feet as you go along. Below is a schedule of where and when the books will be placed. Please sign our guest book at the end of each StoryWalk® so we know how many people made it out.
