Today is a great day to get outside! Take a favorite book and find a park bench, swing or blanket. Or, did you know you can take a walk and read a story as you go, right here in Indianapolis? Visit the Story Walk in the Ruckle Street Pocket Park. Stroll through the park and read a book displayed in mounted frames. Stories are rotated on a monthly basis. While you are out, point out the birds you see and hear. Can you see a cardinal? What color is it? Can you hear a robin? How many different bird songs can you count?
Have a great day outdoors with a Bird Indy Trunk! These bird watching educational trunks and duffel bag kits are full of tools and activities to help you learn about urban bird watching. You can check one out with your library card!
