The Parks Foundation of Highland Park invites families to take a hike while enjoying a book about the wonders of nature. Constance’s Story Trail, is an interactive walk featuring a children’s nature-themed book with pages displayed at intervals along the trail. Constance’s Story Trail is made possible through a generous grant to the Parks Foundation by former Highland Park resident Marc Mar-Yohana as a touching tribute to his late daughter and to celebrate her love of nature and reading. Constance and her father had shared many joyous hours wandering among books posted on Heller’s scenic trails before the display was severely damaged and removed last spring. Featured stories will include some of Constance’s favorites and books selected by the Highland Park Public Library staff. Organizers also hope to offer a chance for local youth to display their writing.
