CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Oso Bay Wetlands Preservation and Learning Center is excited to announce their new project – a StoryWalkÂ® Trail. StoryWalks are a way to bring books to the outdoors, allowing families to read one page at a time while walking along a designated path. The Preserve has revamped its sensory journey to become a StoryWalkÂ® with a new book installed each quarter.
This project was made possible with a grant from the National Recreation and Park Association. TeamCITGO volunteers helped update flower beds along the trail to provide native wildflowers for pollinators as part of the first phase of the trail renovation in June. Throughout July and August, eighteen panels for the pages of books were installed, along with new paint and other improvements.
The Preserve is eager to give families a new way to explore the outdoors, fall in love with children’s books, and spend time learning together. The first book, On Meadowview Street by Henry Cole, will be on the track until December 1. New books will be published on March 1, June 1 and December 1 of each year.
The Oso Preserve team is also working with a community volunteer to set up a free lending library near the trail for families to drop off or pick up donated books.
