Trail Tales

A New Way to Explore a Good Book!

Trail Tales winter

At the Long Branch Nature Center

A series of story panels from books about nature and wildlife are installed along the trail, allowing visitors to read the book as they walk.

Trail Tales is made possible through the kind permission of the individual authors and publishers, and thanks to the Friends of the Arlington Public Library.

New Trail Tales are installed several times each year.
