The Itasca Nature Center has teamed up with the Itasca Library to present a StoryWalk™, a fun way to combine reading and exercising. A series of signs throughout the Nature Center grounds feature spreads from a children’s picture book allowing a reader to follow along with a story by walking.
The StoryWalk® this fall will feature Mike Curato’s picture book, Little Elliot: Fall Friends, and it will be at the loop right next to the Springbrook Nature Center beginning early to mid-September. This project is sponsored by the library, the Itasca Park District, the Friends of the Itasca Community Library, and the Friends of Springbrook Nature Center of Itasca. The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont, and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library
