Botanic Gardens Book TrailComments Off on Botanic Gardens Book Trail
For the entire month of October, we have set up a book trail at the West Virginia Botanic Gardens. The book, “At the Old Haunted House” by Kelen Ketteman, will be displayed on pop-up boards along a trail so that you can move, enjoy the outdoors, and follow along a story. You can find the book trail near the labyrinth area at the gardens.
