More About StoryWalks

StoryWalks are fun, educational activities that place pages from children’s storybooks along local trails.

StoryWalk was created as a way for people of all ages to combine physical activity in a local, natural area with a story combining a love of two things: storytelling and walking.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
