GROW educators invite children and parents to the first StoryWalk, a concept combining the love of reading with the outdoors, during National Public Gardens Week.

This free event features the book A Butterfly is Patient by award-winning children's author and guest speaker for the event, Dianna Aston, and will highlight the newly replanted Pollinator Pathway connecting the Fort Worth Botanic Garden to the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT). Children will follow the story by reading pages mounted within wooden frameworks along the outdoor pathway.

Fort Worth Public Library Director Manya Shorr will offer opening remarks, and Aston will discuss her ideas for the featured book followed by a book signing. Books will be available for purchase.

Stories within the GROW StoryWalk will be replaced over time, to feature other nature experiential books for children. Funded by The Fort Worth Garden Club, this exhibit will be open for viewing from May to August 2019.

Free admission.
