FOOTHILLS LEARNING CENTER THE STORY TRAIL


Wander with your preschooler on the gentle trail around the Foothills Learning Center, read some fun nature-related stories and look for the many plants and animals that live here. Each month a different story is posted on our 10 child-sized reading platforms. Reading levels vary. The trail is open from sunrise to sunset seven days a week The trail begins along the split rail fence in the northwest corner of the parking lot (the one with the dandelion sculpture). We borrowed this idea from the StoryWalk ™ Project created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library. Take a stroll and find these wonderful books:
