StoryWalk at Lake Wilderness Arboretum

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 this story walk 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.

October StoryWalk®: 

October is such a wonderful time for a walk at the Arboretum with all the colorful fall foliage. This month's StoryWalk® selection, Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert, celebrates the colors and changing scenery of fall. Enjoy the travels of Leaf Man and then see what you can create or see with colorful leaves.
