Peninsula State Park Digs Reading


Bike Book

Peninsula State Park Volunteer Ray Brown created the Peninsula Nature Center’s lending library, part of the park’s “Peninsula Digs Reading” initiative. His granddaugters painted the library, including the monarch butterfly doors.

Mention “reading” and most people think of books, but that’s just a part of it. Recognizing symbols on maps and traffic signs, discriminating sounds, understanding the funny in cartoons, and repeating simple rhymes and songs are all part of developing literacy. Peninsula State Park, with a generous grant from Edgewood Orchard Gallery in Fish Creek, is offering three free mornings of literacy inspired, nature activities.

Peninsula Digs Reading programs are scheduled on Tuesday, June 18, Tuesday, July 16 and Saturday, August 3. Come to the Nature Center between 10 AM and 12 Noon. Try various “word bird” games and art projects to earn a book to keep. Activities are suitable for all ages and most will be nature-themed. The programs are free and open to the public, but a state park vehicle sticker is required.

Complete program information will be forthcoming. If you need additional information or wish to find out about other special events at Peninsula State Park call 920-854-5976.
