Toms Run Story Walk

August 10, 2022

Visit Toms Run Nature Reserve, August 10-29, to explore the children’s book  “The Hike” by Alison Farrell.  The book’s pages are displayed along a short, flat trail near the parking lot.  Thanks to ACLA Youth Services for partnering with us on this cool project.

What kind of activities do your little ones enjoy? Do they like to draw pictures,  collect things, run and climb? Do they like to tell stories about what they saw and did?  “The Hike” can inspire unique connections to our time in nature!

Learn more about the book, reviewed by WPC Education Coordinator Danielle Forchette.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and Kellogg Hubbard Library.
