The Summer Story Walk™ is Posted!

ablandingsturtlestoryweb

AMonarchButterflyStoryWebThe Story Walk™ program combines the benefits of physical activity, time outdoors in nature, literacy and family time by taking children’s books and posting them, in pieces, along a recreational path or hiking trail. Discover this summer's double feature: A Blanding's Turtle Story and A Monarch Butterfly Story by Melissa Kimn and illustrated by Jada Fitch. Its a great way to break in those new boots in this warm summer weather! 

 To find the story start at the base parking lot (where Mountain Road meets Ring Trail) and follow the pages along the western side of the Ring Trail (left at first fork) to Witch Hazel Trail and finish near the summit. Enjoy!
