Walk, Read, and Learn on the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary’s Trails

The popular Trails and Tales program will continue at the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary, with new storylines. Together with the Richland Community Library, the Sanctuary will have new themes for the storybook walk and activities this summer and fall.

Pages from a storybook will be posted along the Sanctuary’s paved path for families to read as they walk. There also will be self-guided activities that complement the story’s themes and a reading list at the Richland Community Library to learn even more and practice reading skills.

The stories and activities are updated every two months and are open to all during normal operating hours with the cost of admission (free to members).
