Come visit our StoryWalk®

Visit the Pollinator Pathway to walk through beautifully illustrated children’s books that focus on nature. Each page encourages guests to interact with their surroundings and consider natural wonders while reading through the exhibit. Free and accessible to everyone, the StoryWalk® at FWBG|BRIT supports literacy, learning, and attention to nature.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT, and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.

A special thank you to the Fort Worth Garden Club for their continued support of our community. This kind and generous donation makes science-literacy possible for all visitors who walk and read through this StoryWalk®.
