Peninsula State Park Digs Reading

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

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

Peninsula Digs Reading programs are scheduled on June 18, July 16 and Aug. 3. Come to the Nature Center between 10 am and 12 pm. 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. For more information call 920.854.5976.
