Young children and their families can enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time through our new StoryWalk® initiative. Our Early Childhood Committee invites families to join the movement to combine literacy, exercise, nature, and family bonding. Signs with storybook pages will be located along paths in the community. Look for the icons to learn how you can engage with your child. We encourage you to share your photos on social media using #ScottCountyStoryWalk as your hashtag.
