Event Description
(For families) Enjoy a morning hike for kids in the Menomonee Valley Community Park and Three Bridges Park. Three expert storytellers will be stationed along the route ready to engage young minds with stories that relate to the fascinating history of this place. 

Stop 1: Urban Ecology Center - Pick up your nature journal* and Story Hike map. Get a stamp at each story stop!

Stop 2: Valley Passage - Native American story

Stop 3: People of the Road Sculpture - Milwaukee Railroad story

Stop 4: Killdeer Hill - Nature story

A new Story Hike will begin every 20 minutes at 10:00am, 10:20am, and 10:40am. The route is 1 mile and will take about an hour to complete.

All kids are welcome, but stories are geared toward kids under 10 years old. Adult caregivers will surely enjoy the stories and learning about these places as well!
