RDCK Book Walk

Nelson, BC: Looking for a fun, interactive, outdoor activity with your family? Starting Friday February 18, the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) is offering a book walk at four different locations through February 28. 

A book walk is a self-guided interactive activity where a children’s story, page by page, is placed along a popular walking route. Whether you are walking, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing, this is a great opportunity to get outside and have fun as a family.

“This is an effort to really encourage active living, connecting with nature, and youth literacy while showcasing some of the wonderful outdoor spaces we have in our communities,” said Amanda Beavers, RDCK Programmer – Events and Seasonal Programs. “This is a great opportunity for families to get outside and try something new.”

The book walk will be offered at four different locations, including Great Northern Rail Trail (1105 Mountain Station Road), Slocan Park Trail (across from the Slocan Park Hall at 3036 Hwy.6), Crescent Valley Beach Trail (1277 Highway 6), and Taghum Beach Regional Park Trail (Granite Road).

The Province of British Columbia has provided the RDCK, specifical Nelson and District Community Complex and Slocan Valley Recreation, with a grant in support of this free, community Family Day activity.
