The Story Trail in East Granby is again open at the East Granby Land Trust’s Ian Clark Preserve. Family hikers are welcome to explore this half-mile loop and enjoy a children’s story. This story trail helps build children’s interest in reading, while encouraging healthy outdoor activity for children and their families. Stories will be updated with the seasons, offering a new experience for repeat visitors.
From mid-August to mid-October, When Grandpa Gives You a Toolbox, by Connecticut author Jamie L.B. Deenihan, will be featured on the story trail.
An original story to be written and illustrated by the East Granby Public Library’s Young Writers Club will debut from mid-October to Nov. 30. Details regarding the children’s writer workshop are available at egpl.org
