StoryWalk® Sundays-September 2022

September 25 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

The September StoryWalk® Sunday was moved to September 25 due to rain.

Our series of StoryWalk® Sunday adventures for kids continues in September.

The story posted on the StoryWalk® trail at Pine Hill Park changes monthly, and a special story event accompanies each one on the second Sunday of each month. This month’s StoryWalk® Sunday is the perfect way to enjoy the end of summer and welcome the season of falling leaves!

Kids will join a guided walk along the story trail as they read the book, then make a special craft project to take home.

The featured storybook for September is “It’s Fall,” by Linda Glaser.

“Simple text and bold, beautiful paper sculpture convey the animal life, plant life, weather, colors, clothing, and feelings associated with the fall season.”

The event is FREE, but pre-registration is required by September 8. 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.

On October 9, the featured book is “The Pumpkin Fair,” by Eve Bunting with illustrations by Eileen Christelow.

Current Covid safety guidelines are being 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; the Carolyn Terry Eddy Family: Carolyn, with daughters Connie Fleagle & Kim Larkin, and an anonymous donor, in honor of the life and work of Eunice Statler. 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.
