Free and open to everyone!

A fun, unique way for kids to experience literature and Chipman Preserve’s spectacular lupines! In conjunction with three area libraries, this is the second event in our popular Seasonal Storybook Hike Series. Join SWMLC board member (and mom), Dr. Jennifer Lau and the folks from Comstock Township LibraryGalesburg Charleston Memorial District Library, and the Richland Community Library for a reading of the children’s classic “Miss Rumphius”. We will stroll along kid-friendly trails, explore the natural landscape, and read pages from the book which have been posted at intervals along the way.

The guided hike will be held from 3:00 – 4:00 pm and the first 12 families to RSVP and attend the hike will receive a free copy of “Miss Rumphius” provided by our event partner Bookbug. After the guided hike, the preserve will remain open and the storybook will remain posted for anyone who would like to participate in a self-guided hike.
