StoryWalk® Sundays April 2022

March 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Our series of StoryWalk® Sunday adventures for kids continues in April. This month only, it’s on the first Sunday.

The story posted on the StoryWalk® trail at Pine Hill Park will change monthly, and plans call for a special event to accompany each one on the second Sunday of each month.

April’s storybook is “Our Big Home: An Earth Poem” by Linda Glaser. 

The beautiful poem gently leads children toward understanding the need to care for our environment. The author’s lyrical style shares knowledge that our Earth is home to people and to all plants and animals as well. We share the air, the water, the soil—everything that sustains us all on Earth.

Led by an Institute faculty member, kids will enjoy a guided walk along the story trail as they read the book, then make a special craft project to take home—and enjoy a campfire and yummy s’mores!

The event is FREE, but pre-registration is required by March 27. To register, email to: info@natureandcultureinstitute.org or call 717-762-0373. Limited to 20 children. 

Children in grades K–5 may be dropped off and picked up at 3 p.m. All families are welcome, but activities are geared for preschool and elementary age kids.

The stories posted on the StoryWalk® trail at Pine Hill Park will change monthly, with plans for a special event to accompany each one on the second Sunday of the month. The book for May will be announced soon, check back. 

Current COVID-19 guidelines will be followed.

Pine Hill’s StoryWalk® trail, an Institute project, was funded in part by Summit Endowment, Marge Kiersz and Rouzerville Business Association, with in-kind support from Washington Township, Hopewell Manufacturing, Waynesboro Area School District “Be the Village,” and Alexander Hamilton Memorial Free Library.

Additional support is from The Institute’s Today’s Horizon Fund contributors: The Nora Roberts Foundation, The John R. Hershey Jr. and Anna L. Hershey Family Foundation, Alma W. Oyer, APX Enclosures, Inc., and The Carolyn Terry Eddy Family: Carolyn, with daughters Connie Fleagle & Kim Larkin. Facility support courtesy of Washington Township

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 Ms. Ferguson.
