Library Nature Trail

Library Nature Trail

Learn about nature by walking our half-mile Library Nature Trail behind our library. The library has an agreement with Landmark Conservancy to set aside a portion of the land for the conservancy. Only educationally related items may be built.

Listen to Emily Stone, Naturalist/Education Director from the Cable Natural History Museum describe 18 points along the trail during each of the seasons. 

Access the audio using the buttons below on your smartphone, IPad or other portable smart devices. 

Funding for the audio experience was from a grant from the C.D. Besadny Fund, Natural Resources Foundation of WI, Inc.  Enjoy!

YouTube Storytime with Ann


Walk the trail to read alone or bring your family.

At the end of the walk please let the library know you’ve read the book by completing a short survey on Google forms.
