Story Paths at Minocqua Winter Park (Families) (All Summer) (7588 Squirrel Hill Road)
Head out to Minocqua Winter Park during daylight hours to read a story while you walk through the woods. Two stories are available (Tot Trot Loop and Bunny Trail).
We are lucky to have a partnership with the Minocqua Winter Park staff, who very graciously display our books along their trails all year long so that we are able to offer Story Paths to our community.  This summer, the Tot Trot Loop will feature “Let Nature Be Your Teacher” by Chandra Ziegler, a local author who gave a presentation at Minocqua Winter Park recently.  The Bunny Trail will feature “Swimmy” by Leo Lionni, a book that fits in great with the “All Together Now” theme.  Minocqua Winter Park is open all summer long from sun up to sun down and the trails can be reached by foot.  Check out Minocqua Winter Park’s website for more information about their facility and trails: Minocqua Winter Park.
