Washoe County Regional Parks and Open Space, in partnership with the Washoe County Library System and the Washoe County School District, is offering their second Story Stroll to promote reading, engage elementary students, highlight our local parks, and engage our community – but this time, the students are writing the story.

The Roy Gomm Elementary School fourth grade class has worked together to author an original story that will be featured in the Fall Story Stroll. The Fall Story Stroll will take place along the .7 mile loop Nature Trail, encircling the pond at Davis Creek Regional Park.

Local artist Sarah Grant lent her talents to the project by creating all of the illustrations for the book about how animals get ready for winter. Pages will be mounted along the trail for participants to read as they stroll around the pond. Ranger-led strolls will begin at 11:00am September 22 and every Saturday until October 6, led by Park Ranger Nick Steuer. The stroll will conclude with an interactive activity given by Library representatives. Self-led strolls will be available during park hours.

Fall Story Stroll Schedule:

  • September 22 – October 6: Self-led strolls during park hours
  • September 22 – Ranger-led stroll at 11:00am with Library activities
  • September 29 – Ranger-led stroll at 11:00am with Library activities
