Story walk starts at nature center Sunday
Release Date: July 25, 2009

Hat's off to the Greenburgh Nature Center for inaugurating Storywalk, an innovative idea from Vermont. In April of this year I suggested that we combine fitness, literacy and fun on some of our trails--pages of childrens books are placed on stakes. Parents walk with thier children and read the books. The program starts at the nature center tomorrow. I am hopeful that the concept will be expanded to other nature trails in Greenburgh.

Reading and nature walks. Two of our favorite things. Join us for the “inauguration” of StoryWalk, an innovative program that combines the two. A GNC naturalist will lead you along our woodland trail, and you’ll have an opportunity to enjoy a favorite children’s storybook along the way. Come see what it’s all about. Free.

A great idea from Vermont: STORY WALK---combines fitness, literacy and fun. Pages of a childrens book are placed on a stake and the childrens book is spaced equidistantly along the length of a bike path or wooded trail. Each complete story walk consists of no fewer than 30 stakes.  The first story walk was installed at Montpeliers Hubbard park in Vermont. This would be a great initiative at town parks, or nature center and could be done in conjunction with the Library. I will be asking town staff to look into this creative idea.  The goal: adults bring children to the story walk to get exercise and to have fun reading together.  What do you think?  Would you be interested in getting involved in a task force to work on this idea?
