Story Walk Summer 2019 at the Orchard Arboretum
June 1 - August 31
What do you get when you cross reading a story while walking outside? A Story Walk! Kestrel’s 2019 Story Walk is now open to the public. This summer’s children’s book, whose pages are set outdoors along a universally accessible path, is Earth Day Every Day, by Lisa Bullard and you’ll find it at the Orchard Arboretum Conservation Area in Amherst.
Though we observe Earth Day on April 22, Earth Day Every Day is about a young Earthling named Trina who learns how she can care for the earth during the rest of the year, too—at school, at home, and in her neighborhood. While you read the story, you also get to enjoy the picturesque scenery of the beautiful Orchard Arboretum.
The Story Walk will remain in place throughout the summer of 2019. You are welcome to visit it at any time during daylight hours. Like all town conservation areas, there is no charge to visit. It’s a perfect outing for families!
Kestrel is proud to host this Story Walk in partnership with the Friends of the Orchard Arboretum and the Applewood Retirement Community and the Town of Amherst. We are grateful to Holyoke High School Dean Campus for the construction of the story walk signs. This program is supported in part by a grant from Amherst Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
