Fairborn Community Library’s “Hawk’s Woodland Walk” wins award

Fairborn, OH: “Hawk’s Woodland Walk,” a Nature Literature Trail that opened at Valle View Reserve in late April has been recognized by the Columbus Society of Communicating Arts with the Creative Best Award of Merit. The project was submitted by Fulcrum Creatives under the “Environmental” design category.

“I love helping community organizations come together," says Lydia Stutzman, the Art Director for the Project, “in this case to promote early literacy and getting kids excited about nature and caring for the world around them.” Stutzman has also volunteered with the public library in the past.

Fairborn Parks Foundation, Fairborn Parks & Recreation Division, Greene County Library Foundation, and the Fairborn Community Library worked together to create the Nature Literature Trail. Head Librarian of the Fairborn Community Library, Ann Cooper, authored the panels of the literature trail, which detail the local wildlife found in the park. The goal of the project is to expose children to nature and literature.

Valle View Reserve's walking path and Hawk’s Woodland Walk is located at 1097 Empire Court behind 5/3 Bank off Commerce Center Boulevard.
