Scout here… or as they call me at the state park, Ranger Scout. I have been busy this summer meeting children at libraries. It is my job to let them know how much fun it is visit their own state parks and to become a Junior Ranger just like me.
It turns out that parks can be fun even if you are not a little horse. I like to run on the nature trails and look at all of the interesting things in the nature center. I also like to show everyone how brave I am by walking over the river on a high wooden suspension bridge. Sometimes I surprise park guests when they are running or walking on the trails too. I have been taking many selfies with new friends this summer.
In September, my park will be having a special day to celebrate books. I have been helping with this program every year since I was a baby. Admission to enter the park on that day is a gently used children’s book. When the programs are over, all of the donated books come back to the farm with me. I will deliver them over the next few months to children who need more books at home.
I hope your summer has been fun. Remember, it is not too late to visit a park!
This is Scout Out until next time.
