The storywalk on the HILDEBRAND TRAIL is done for the season. We hope you have enjoyed the stories and your time outdoors. We want to thank everyone who has supported us, especially Steve Torrez, the staff and students at the Fontana Elementary school. Also, the DPW staff for maintaining the signs and trails. Watch for stories again in the spring.

[The stories begin at the Mill House Gazebo, which is across from the Fontana Elementary School, and finish right before the last bridge toward Mill St. [Weather permitting-we will try to post new stories every 7-10 days] Get out and enjoy the sounds of the running creek, examine the plants starting to pop out, and, most of all, reading our stories.]

See you in the spring…
