Read and Hike!

Try StoryWalk © in Our Parks!

StoryWalk® is a fun idea to get communities outside and reading. Each month, we will put new nature-themed children’s stories along trails in different parks. Stories will all be nature-themed and fun to read! Bring your whole family out to hike and read a page of the story every few feet as you go along. Below is a schedule of where and when the books will be placed.  Please sign our guest book at the end of each StoryWalk® so we know how many people made it out.

Call  (515) 961-6169 if you have questions about finding the start of the StoryWalk® within in a park.
