Aspetuck Land Trust and Westport Library hold a ‘story walk’

Walk and discover each page in the story, “Bird, Butterfly, Eel,” by local Easton artist James Prosek

StoryTimeStoryWalk, an innovative way for children — and adults — to read a story and take a walk at the same time, will take place at the Aspetuck Land Trust’s Leonard Schine Preserve in Westport on Saturday, Sept. 24, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.,

The preserve is located at 1 Glendinning Place (enter from Weston Road and park roadside).

The public can take a self-guided hike with a child along the trails and enjoy the Natural Playground (voted one of the top 50 playgrounds in the U.S.) as they walk and discover each page in the story, “Bird, Butterfly, Eel,” written by local Easton artist and writer James Prosek.

Special guest Lynne Perrigo, the children’s librarian at the Westport Library. will be there to inspire children along the way. This is a short walk (less than one-third of a mile) and is appropriate for all ages.

This StoryWalk is cosponsored by Aspetuck Land Trust and the Westport Public Library. 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 Ferguson.
