Here’s are a few events in the Thurston County area that will keep you entertained in the coming week!
Story Trails at Olympia Parks - West Bay and Harry Fain’s Legion Park
Now through March 15, all day.
In this collaboration with Olympia Parks, we've deconstructed picture books and put them on signs placed along the trails, so you can enjoy a nature walk and a great book at the same time. Make your way to West Bay Park to learn all about bees and read Shabazz Larkin's "The Thing About Bees: A Love Story". Or travel over to Harry Fain's Legion Park to explore local flora while being on the lookout for little sprites with Phoebe Wahl's "Backyard Fairies". Park locations and book titles will change regularly, so you can follow Story Trails all through your public parks. Click here for more information.
