Families bring learning outdoors in Hannibal

Posted:
HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -

Families in Hannibal brought the classroom to the city's parks Friday.

The Hannibal Parks and Recreation Department teamed up with the school's Parents As Teachers program in Central Park.

The goal was for young children to explore the outdoors through language and literacy.

Organizers say they wanted to provide fun activities for families in the area.

"We were trying to have more events where children can come out in our parks and just enjoy the setting of our beautiful parks, but then there's a little something else. They get to read this story along the trail and be with Mother Nature," Mary Lynne Richards of the Hannibal Parks and Recreation.

The story book trail will be in the park through Monday the 23rd.
