Stellarton Public Library is encouraging people to walk by providing free handmade walking sticks in three sizes. A patron and his 11-year-old nephew hand made walking sticks and donated them to the Stellarton Library to be given out for free. They provided the following as ideas on how to use the walking sticks: use them while picking up trash on the road or sidewalk; take it into the woods while learning plant, animal and insect names in Mi’kmaq; or take it on a hike to identify birds!
This program is informed by the Position Statement on Active Outdoor Play by providing accessible equipment to all ages, to explore and engage with the outdoors.
