Calendar/Event Details

The Lake Wilderness Arboretum and Maple Valley Library have partnered together to bring a StoryWalk® to Maple Valley. StoryWalk® is an innovative approach to encouraging people of all ages to get out and walk while enjoying wonderful children’s books. With her wealth of experience, Sharon Chastain, the children’s librarian at the Maple Valley Library, selects the best children’s books for the project. Then the pages are installed in frames along the Arboretum’s Main Looping Trail so as you walk, you can read the book one page at a time, all while enjoying being outside. Our hope is that this feature will provide children a new way to see, learn and experience the amazing world that we live in.

May 2022 book: This month's book, Compost Stew, An A to Z Recipe for the Earth by Mary McKenna Siddals, teaches us the best ingredients for a successful compost pile, from apple cores to zinnia heads. Looking for simple, child-friendly ways to help the planet? This fun picture book will give you some ideas.
