Explore the family-friendly path and hear a story

Dawes Arboretum has partnered with the Licking County Library to create a story trail featuring Shutta Crum's book, "The Bravest of the Brave." Families are invited to celebrate the trail's opening from 10 a.m. to 12 noon on May 18. Children can explore the family-friendly trail while enjoying the story about a courageous skunk walking home through woods alone.

The free event also will feature special activities and a visit from the Bookmobile.

Dawes Arboretum is located at 7770 Jacksontown Road, Newark 43056. For more details, visit http://dawesarb.org/.
