Plogging to the Platz with StoryWalk
4-H Center (515 High St.)
Girl Scout Cadette Troop #179 is leading up a free, untimed 5K walk/run route from the 4H Center to the Platz and back. Picking up litter en route ("plogging") will earn participants a chance to win a prize. Learn about how to INVEST IN OUR PLANET, enjoy the outdoors and central Vermillion, and take steps toward sustainability! Parking available on streets.
This year, StoryWalk partners with Cadette Troop #179 and will place The Curious Garden by Peter Brown along a portion of the Plogging to the Platz route. StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that places a children’s story (literally a book taken apart) along a popular walking route in a community.
While out exploring one day, a little boy named Liam discovers a struggling garden and decides to take care of it. As time passes, the garden spreads throughout the dark, gray city, transforming it into a lush, green world. For more: The Curious Garden.
