Hiking and reading are two of our favorite activities at EDI, and now visitors to Crestridge Ecological Reserve can enjoy BOTH with our first ever Storybook Hike! Families guide their children down a trail that skirts an enchanting oak grove, stopping along the way to explore the pages of a nature-themed storybook. Our first story is, "The Tree Lady: The True Story of How One Tree-Loving Woman Changed a City Forever," by H. Joseph Hopkins.
These Storybook Hikes are a wonderful opportunity for families to safely get outside together and meaningfully connect with nature. The featured book will change every few months so we encourage you to check back often for the next story. Please feel free to share any photos or conversations that result from your hikes with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. We love to hear what kiddos have to say! Happy Hiking!
