Summer Storybook Walk

A Storybook Walk is an outdoor reading and walking experience of a children’s book or poem with the “pages” placed in different areas along a walking path.

During the month of July, families are invited to stroll through downtown Grants Pass and Cave Junction at their own pace to read the featured story. Each “page” directs participants to the next location. This summer features the poem“I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” by William Wordsworth and photography from local photographers.
