Self-Guided Adventure

CREA’s Storywalk®, Open to the Public 


The Storywalk is currently unavailable due to temporary closure of the Preserve (effective April 6, 2020). The storyboards are receiving some much needed maintenance during this interlude. Check back for updates!


StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children — and adults! — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children’s book are attached to wooden stakes, which are installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll down the trail, you’re directed to the next page in the story.

CREA’s StoryWalk®is open to the public year round and we welcome you and your young naturalists to join us anytime dusk-dawn to enjoy the walk at your own pace. The StoryWalk® can be found on the Barnes Leap Trail just behind the CREA Ecology Center. 

The CREA’s Ecology Center is open on Sundays from 12-2 if you’d like combine a visit with your StoryWalk adventure.
