Fredericksburg has a new tale along its StoryWalk, and this one is extra special.

This past semester, education students at the University of Mary Washington developed a children’s book specifically for our community and the StoryWalk along the Rappahannock River Heritage Trail.

The story, “Alex’s Day on the Rappahannock,” will be available through September. In it, the main character, Alex, discovers more about our Rappahannock River, how to enjoy it safely, and how take care of it.

The Fredericksburg StoryWalk is along the Rappahannock River Heritage Trail and Caroline Street between Old Mill Park and Ford Street. Below is a “Freehling Finds” video we did about the StoryWalk initiative.
