Eco-Book Club and Hike

Eco-Book Club and Hike

If you are an outdoor enthusiast and book lover, this reading and hiking combo is for you! Each month we will explore a different aspect of the natural world through a book and a hike. Each session will include a book discussion followed by a bring-your-own brown bag lunch. Participants can then head out into the woods for a guided hike tailored to the theme of the book. Book discussions start at 11am and the guided hike will begin at 1pm. Book copies available through O.W.W.L., STLS, and Monroe County Libraries.

This program is free and open to the public, but advanced registration is preferred.
