Walking While Reading can be Healthy and Fun

Black Swamp Conservancy, 577 Foundation present Story Walk with Butterflies

PERRYSBURG, July 5, 2018: Imagine walking with your kids or grandkids on a beautiful summer day - and reading a book at the same time! Black Swamp Conservancy is combining two of our favorite summer activities in a Story Walk program that will be appearing around the region this summer.

Story Walks promote literacy, physical activity and community involvement. A book is taken apart and mounted (by page or spread) on panels that are posted along a walking trail or path.  Families not only read the book, but also have activities to complete or items to collect along the way. By the end of the program, you have read a book, taken a walk and completed activities together.

The first book in the Story Walk program, “From Caterpillar to Butterfly,” by Deborah Heiligman, will be displayed throughout the grounds of The 577 Foundation in conjunction with the Foundation’s Monarch Metamorphosis program this summer.  Monarch Metamorphosis was inspired by retired biology teacher Susan Garn and her husband Grant, who have perfected the art of fostering monarchs from egg to flyers over the past several years.

Through support from the Country Garden Club, Perrysburg Garden Club, the Garns and Tom Belcher, The 577 Foundation will have monarchs in their varying life stages on display throughout the summer, including butterfly releases.

The Story Walk will be available, free of charge, to visitors beginning July 11, 2018 during The 577 Foundation’s regular hours (daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.).

The Conservancy will use two additional books for the Story Walk program this year: “A River” by Marc Martin, and “A Seed is Sleepy,” by Dianna Hutts Aston. The three books will be rotated in outdoor settings throughout northwest Ohio. Check the Conservancy’s Facebook page (@Black Swamp Conservancy) or website (www.BlackSwamp.org) for dates and locations.

This project was funded by a grant from the Seed-to-the-Sower Fund of the Toledo Community Foundation.
