June 23: We Walk Through the Forest by Lisa Farland – The magic of the forest is calling and it sounds like birds singing and twigs snapping underfoot. What is that up ahead? Is it a butterfly or another animal behind that tree? We Walk Through the Forest follows a spirited young girl and her playful pup as they create wondrous adventures together in the great outdoors.
- Janelle will lead you along the trail reading the story of the day, followed by a fun craft!
- These programs are free of charge (donations appreciated) and open to all ages, but best for 3-8 year olds.
- Program will be held rain or shine (cancelled with extremely inclement weather).

- Stories will be left up on the trail until the next program.
