Summer Family Evenings encourage reading, nature

-A A +A

The Pajarito Environmental Education Center continues its Summer Family Evenings series with a program that is back again this year,’
Tuesday, families are invited to a StoryWalk, from 6:30-8 p.m. to discover the pages of the book “Roxaboxen” by Alice McLerran, as they stroll.
The StoryWalk Project is a national program that was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. PEEC adopted the concept last summer and brought it back again this year.
Event participants will take a summer stroll on the nature trail, while discovering pages of a storybook posted along the way. Kids will locate the next page of the story and do activities with their families along the way.
The event is free to attend for PEEC members. Price for non-members is $5 per family, regardless of how many are in the family. No advance registration is required, and families may drop in anytime throughout the program.
