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.

StoryWalks are presented in partnership with Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority (CLOCA). Check the CLOCA website for upcoming StoryWalks at one of the other seven CLOCA Conservation Areas in Durham Region at

Be sure to take lots of photos and share them with us!

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