Wild About Reading: Meet at the Trail!

The United Way of Southwest Minnesota is thrilled to announce the annual summer reading program, Wild About Reading: Meet at the Trail!  Wild About Reading is a 60 minute reading and active learning program held in June and July that focuses on literacy development while incorporating movement and hands-on activities. The activities include:  interactive stories, an exercise card activity, Born Learning Trail exploring, scavenger hunt, parachute games, activity dice, and a life size bowling game.   

Parents, caregivers and child care providers are encouraged to bring their preschool or young children to the Trail nearest to them and enjoy the fun. Child care providers who attend with the children in their care will receive a bag of books for their daycare. Other children in attendance will receive a free book.   Programming is free and brought to you by the United Way of Southwest Minnesota.  Activities will be geared toward pre-school age learners, but all ages are welcome.
