NEW Story Walk at Hall School!

Many Rivers first and second grade students spent this past semester working with the Cumberland County Soil & Water Conservation District, (CCSWCD), to develop a story walk for a portion of the City Forest Trail behind Hall School. We're excited to announce that with the help of some awesome parent volunteers, the story walk has officially been installed and open to the public!

Starting in early February, CCSWCD educators began weekly visits with the first and second grade students to learn about the water cycle and protecting our water resources.  Using what they learned, the students then wrote and illustrated a story to be used for the story walk, called "Flow's Amazing Adventure".  The story follows a water droplet on her crazy journey through the water cycle.

This project was made possible with funds from the Greener Neighborhoods Cleaner Streams program in partnership with the Cumberland County Soil & Water Conservation District.  We would also like to give a big thank you to the amazing Many River's Educators, Carie Garrett and Kristen Wyatt, as well as teaching artist Sarah Boyden.

Join us on Tuesday, June 6th at 5:00pm for a ribbon cutting ceremony and walk through to celebrate the new story walk.  We can't wait for you to see it!
