StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that places a children’s story (a deconstructed book, page by page) in a park or on a trail. It helps promote literacy, outdoor physical activity, and encourages parent / community involvement. Visit the StoryWalk anytime at Gregory Park, located in West Glenwood Springs.
The featured bilingual book on display is "Dipper's Adventure", an original story written and illustrated by the 4th and 5th grade classes at Two Rivers Community School. The story is about a mule deer named Dipper who finds his habitat encroached upon as he leaves his winter ground and heads back to the mountains to find a new habitat. He encounters many different plants and animals along the way!
This project was made possible through a grant from Garfield Healthy Communities Coalition, a partnership with the City of Glenwood Springs Parks & Recreation department, and the hard work of volunteers from the Glenwood Springs Kiwanis Club. Thank you!
