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.

May StoryWalk®: 

The weather has been beautiful, so get outside for a good walk and story at the Arboretum's StoryWalk trail. This month's StoryWalk® selection, Children Make Terrible Pets by Peter Brown, is a fun play on the "first pet" experience. Find out what happens when Lucy, a young bear, discovers a boy in the woods and decides to keep him as a pet.
