Available For Children And Families

HUNTERDON COUNTY, NJ – The county continues to offer educational and fun programs for families with a recent joint venture between the Parks Division and the Library system, made possible with grant funds, by bringing ‘The StoryWalk Project’ to the county’s Arboretum, Commissioner Matt Holt said.

Commissioner Holt, the Board’s Parks & Recreation Division liaison, said, “’The StoryWalk Project’ is a unique way to provide exercise and education, at no cost, for participants. It is truly an innovative way to bring activity and the outdoors to participants.”

‘The StoryWalk Project’ was created by Anne Ferguson and the Kellogg-Hubbard Library to encourage activity and learning in a fun way, without cost, for children of all ages to enjoy.

As you walk down the Arboretum’s ‘Wizard Trail,’ pages from the book “Lawrence in the Fall” are installed on posts along the trail for visitors to read and enjoy and will be available until the first snowfall.

Commissioner Zachary T. Rich, the Board’s Library liaison, said, “The Parks and Recreation Division, and the county’s Libraries, have consistently planned fun and interesting events for residents. ‘StoryWalk’ is another example of the creativity and enthusiasm of county staff and we thank them for their hard work.”

The public is invited to visit the Arboretum located at 1020 Route 31 North, Lebanon, Clinton
Township, to participate.

Information about the StoryWalk Project is available on the Library’s website or the Parks &
Recreation’s website.
