StoryWalk

May 1 - May 31
Cost: Free

The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Pedestrian and Bicycle Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library. StoryWalk is the opportunity to share a book with your children as you wander from page to page down a nature trail. Celebrate the joy of reading and the taste of the great outdoors!

Laminated pages from a children’s book are attached to wooden stakes and installed along outdoor paths. As you continue your walk, you will find the next page in the story.

StoryWalk is installed at both Paskamansett Woods and Ridge Hill Reserve.

No need to pre-register for this walk. Just show up and guide yourself!
