The Pleasant Hills Public Library in partnership with the Jefferson Regional Foundation, Remake Learning Days and the Pleasant Hills Arboretum is excited to announce the opening of a Story Hike at the Pleasant Hills Arboretum that can be enjoyed by everyone! We’re hosting an opening day celebration complete with games, crafts, STEM activities and snacks! Visitors can walk the main trail in the Arboretum and stop periodically to enjoy pages from a picture book. The Story Hike will be permanent but during the celebration, activities will be posted along the trail. The Story Hike is designed so that as you walk, you get to read the story and once you’ve finished the trail you will also have completed the book.
Our Story Hike promotes early literacy learning, family engagement, appreciation of nature, and a sense of shared community. When a family visits the Story Hike they will be exposed to the natural wonders of the Arboretum. They will have the ability to explore the Arboretum at their own pace, with the ability to stop frequently and talk about both what they see and how the story progresses.
