Ribbon Cutting for Lakeview Nature Center Storyboards
Please join us for a ribbon cutting for the Macomb Park District StoryWalk at Lakeview Nature Center on October 5 at 11:30 a.m.
StoryWalk® is an engaging educational activity that places a children’s story in nature. Created as a way to inspire parents, teachers, and caregivers to take young children outdoors, it combines learning and literacy with physical activity and natural curiosity. StoryWalk® helps build children’s interest in nature and reading while encouraging healthy activity, creative engagement, and inspired connections for both adults and children. The StoryWalk® project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson and her inspiration can be seen worldwide as StoryWalks® have been installed in 50 states and 13 countries!
The Macomb Park District StoryWalk®, installed at Lakeview Nature Area, consist of 20 story boards. Each board features laminated pages from a children’s book that are installed along an outdoor path through the restored prairie and attached to a special display post. As one strolls down the trail they will be directed to the next page in the story, creating an active and engaging reading experience. The StoryWalk® project also allows the opportunity to highlight diverse authors, illustrators, and stories that help reflect and celebrate the lives of all. Placed within the sanctuary of nature, StoryWalks® combine the narrative and imaginative power of the visual arts alongside the magic storytelling of the written word to create a unique experience that directly benefits the community and encourages wonderment through learning!
