Storytime in the Understory

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Stories come to life for young children with animated readings on the second Tuesday of each month this summer, June thru September. Young story enthusiasts will develop an understanding of the importance of nature and how healthy environments support health and variety in plant and animal life from children’s literature selections. Bring a picnic blanket or lawn chairs and a picnic lunch to enjoy after our storytime. 
After story time, for young reading enthusiasts with energy left to burn, enjoy an adventure with or an audio tree tour with any hand-held device with access to the internet by going to jmu.edu/arboretum/self-guided-tour.

On days when the sun is shining and the temperatures are warm Storytime is outside at the Jurney Stage Garden! In the case of inclement weather, storytime comes indoors.
