The Storywalk Program is a fun, educational, self-guided activity that places pages from Children’s books along a trail. Storywalk was created as a way for people of all ages to combine physical activity with books and to help build children’s interest in reading while encouraging healthy activity for all. (The Storywalk program was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont, and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library). All Storywalks will take place at the Nolan Creek Hike and Bike Trail. Tip: Park at the Harris Community Center and walk towards Yettie Polk Park. Story will be along the Hike and Bike Trail.
