The Spring Story Walk™ is Posted

eliza and the dragonfly

The 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 spring's feature: "Eliza and the Dragonfly" by Susie Caldwell Rinehart and illustrated by Anisa Claire Hovemann.  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!
