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.

March StoryWalk®: 

Looking for a reason to get outside? Take a walk at the Arboretum and read this month's StoryWalk® selection, Trillions of Trees by Kurt Cyrus. This fun, rhyming story follows a brother and sister as they turn a misunderstood phone call into a way to improve their environment.  Hard work, getting dirty, and accepting help from others leads the two on a journey to plant a trillion trees.
