Enjoy a StoryWalk in Nature with Columbia Land Conservancy and Columbia County Libraries!

Take a StoryWalk this summer to enjoy an outdoor adventure while reading a good book. The Columbia Land Conservancy (CLC) is partnering with the Columbia County Library Association to install StoryWalks at several of their Public Conservation Areas: Drowned Lands, Greenport, Hand Hollow, High Falls, and Siegel-Kline Kill. Each StoryWalk will feature pages of a children’s book posted in order along a trail so kids and families can enjoy a story while taking a walk through nature. CLC is also working with partners who are creating StoryWalks along the Harlem Valley Rail Trail, at the Roe Jan Park, in the Village of Philmont, along Warren Street in Hudson, and at PS21. Many of these are works-in-progress, so visit clctrust.org/storywalk to confirm the walk is ready for you, and for more information, including an interactive map of StoryWalk sites.

This project is funded in part by a grant from the NYS Environmental Protection Fund, NYS DEC Hudson River Estuary Program.
