A new book is on display at the Shaw Wetland. This year, with the support of Altrusa of Washington Court House, the Miami Trace Great Oaks FFA, and the Fayette Soil and Water Conservation District, they are featuring four different books throughout the year for each season.

Mr. Bennett’s Shop Capstone students built 13 new additional book stands for the new book, “Stranger in the Woods,” by Carl R. Sams II and Jean Stoick. Each season will also bring a family event which will include reading and fun activities outdoors.

“What better way to engage young people by reading, getting outside and learning about nature. This is all made possible with the great partnership of Altrusa, Miami Trace FFA and Fayette SWCD,” said Brigitte Hisey, natural resource specialist.

The Shaw Wetland on Robinson Road has been a great central location to engage the residents with outdoor opportunities. Visit the Shaw Wetland to read the winter book and visit on Jan. 21 from 10:30 a.m. to noon for some fun activities around the new addition and get a free book.
