On Memorial Day weekend, Write On, Door County will introduce its third Hike & Write booklet and trail display, featuring the beautifully written and illustrated book of poems Lost Words by Robert MacFarlane and illustrator Jackie Morris. They created it in response to the Oxford Junior Dictionary removing nature words such as “acorn” and “heron” to make room for technology terms such as “blog” and “voicemail.”
This third Hike & Write activity booklet encourages nature observation and writing engagement along the half-mile trail behind the new Writing Center, 4210 Juddville Road in Fish Creek. The three free activity booklets are available at the start of the trail or for downloading at writeondoorcounty.org/visit-us. They can be used anytime, but the Lost Words trail displays will be up only June – August.
