Description:  
 
Join Chikaming Open Lands and local libraries for a Storywalk on the Preserves! We are excited to partner with Bridgman Public Library, Buchanan District Library, New Buffalo Township Library, and Three Oaks Township Library to bring fun-filled family friendly story books at four COL preserves starting Sunday, March 21st to Monday, June 21st!
How does the StoryWalk work?
A StoryWalk is a way for people to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time! Book pages have been separately laminated and attached to stakes along the preserve path. As you walk down the trail you are directed to the next page of the story!
Which Preserve will have a StoryWalk?
Go to one (or all!) of the following preserves for a fun family story to enjoy sponsored by a different local library:
Burns Prairie Preserve
Jens Jensen Preserve
Robinson Woods Preserve
Turtle Creek Preserve
When will the StoryWalk Start?
The StoryWalk will be available on the first official day of spring Sunday, March 21st. The StoryWalk will end on the last day of spring Monday, June 21st.
Each preserve will have a different story to enjoy. We encourage you to take your time and enjoy the nature preserves and the fun story books hand picked from our local libraries!
The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.

7:00 PM - 8:00 PMThe Baillys: A Pioneer Family in the Dunes



Location:  Online
Contact:  
Description:  
Joseph Bailly and his family were the first permanent settlers in Indiana's dune region. While Joseph has been the most talked-about Bailly, his wives and daughters were also legendary. It was through these women, all of Native American descent, that Joseph achieved vast land holdings, wealth, fur trade connections and a place in Catholic archives. This program tells the story of these women, their impact on Joseph's business and the ways in which they ensured the survival of the Bailly family legacy for almost 200 years.
 
Presented by Serena Ard, Westchester Public Library. Ard previously presented a Forum program on Le Petit Fort, the only Revolutionary War skirmish in Indiana.

Story Walk
 
Join Chikaming Open Lands and local libraries for a Storywalk on the Preserves! We are excited to partner with Bridgman Public Library, Buchanan District Library, New Buffalo Township Library, and Three Oaks Township Library to bring fun-filled family friendly story books at four COL preserves starting Sunday, March 21st to Monday, June 21st!
How does the StoryWalk work?
A StoryWalk is a way for people to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time! Book pages have been separately laminated and attached to stakes along the preserve path. As you walk down the trail you are directed to the next page of the story!
Which Preserve will have a StoryWalk?
Go to one (or all!) of the following preserves for a fun family story to enjoy sponsored by a different local library:
Burns Prairie Preserve
Jens Jensen Preserve
Robinson Woods Preserve
Turtle Creek Preserve
When will the StoryWalk Start?
The StoryWalk will be available on the first official day of spring Sunday, March 21st. The StoryWalk will end on the last day of spring Monday, June 21st.
Each preserve will have a different story to enjoy. We encourage you to take your time and enjoy the nature preserves and the fun story books hand picked from our local libraries!
The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.

Ring Lardner, Niles� Native Son
His name may or may not “ring” a bell, but in his heyday this Niles native and literary giant was the first “In the Wake of the News” sports columnist for the Chicago Tribune. He covered the 1919 Black Sox scandal and World War I, co-wrote a Broadway play with George M. Cohan and was a magazine writer, a lyricist, a novelist and a short story author whose many admirers included a young Ernest Hemingway. Join us for a profile of Ring Lardner, one of the most fascinating and accomplished celebrities of the early 20th Century.

The Baillys: A Pioneer Family in the Dunes
Joseph Bailly and his family were the first permanent settlers in Indiana's dune region. While Joseph has been the most talked-about Bailly, his wives and daughters were also legendary. It was through these women, all of Native American descent, that Joseph achieved vast land holdings, wealth, fur trade connections and a place in Catholic archives. This program tells the story of these women, their impact on Joseph's business and the ways in which they ensured the survival of the Bailly family legacy for almost 200 years.
 
Presented by Serena Ard, Westchester Public Library. Ard previously presented a Forum program on Le Petit Fort, the only Revolutionary War skirmish in Indiana.
