Visit a Waushara County Library & plan an outdoor adventure


Seems like good weather is finally here to stay, what a great time to visit a Waushara County Library and plan an outdoor adventure.

Besides materials that have information on camping, hiking, biking, walking, running or even geo-caching, libraries can be a great source for local outdoor activities as well as events throughout the county.

The Waushara County Libraries have all the info you need to register the for the “Walk the Waush” challenge. A program sponsored by the Waushara County Health department, Waushara county parks, and the Ice Age Trail Alliance. Be sure to register, then get out and use the trails for a chance to win some prizes. You can also benefit from the exercise and enjoy the beautiful trails.

If hiking is not your thing, consider taking a leisurely story walk. A story walk is a trail you follow, and along the path pages of a book are on display for your reading enjoyment.

Currently there are two story walks in Waushara County. The Pine River Library of Leon-Saxeville, and Waushara County parks sponsored walk is ready for its fourth season. It is located at Willow Creek County Park at W5804 County Road W Wild Rose.

The Hancock Public Library is happy to announce the opening of another story walks at Whistler Mounds Park, just outside of Hancock off County Road GG, at N4140 6th Avenue. This walk will feature Native American themed stories and legends. Both story walks will be displayed May through October and will offer a different story each month.

Whatever outdoor adventure you make this year, use the Waushara County Libraries as a resource to assist you.
