WENATCHEE — Wenatchee Public Library and the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust have teamed up with the help of a local Eagle Scout to promote reading and hiking in the Wenatchee Foothills this spring.

Thirteen new displays were recently put up along the popular Jacobson Preserve Trail, each containing pages from the bilingual children’s story book “Call Me Tree” by Maya Christina Gonzalez. The colorfully illustrated book encourages children to dream and reach to be as free and unique as trees.

The project is an official StoryWalk®, a national program which involves laminated pages of a book along trails or bike paths to promote reading and exercise.
