Storytelling Trail

Starting Thursday 04 August!

Discover the secrets of the evergreens, whispering woods and the mice of the Douglas Fir on our storytelling trail. 

Everyone loves a good story! On beautifully illustrated panels placed across the arboretum, read the fictional stories of our magnificent trees and then use the activity prompts to weave your own tale. Who knows, it may just inspire the next Dara McAnulty!

And talking of Dara McAnulty... he is just one of many inspiring authors who will be appearing at our Children's Book Festival this summer.
