Born Learning Trail Now Open!

The Jefferson County Parks Department has completed a wonderful new improvement project along the Glacial River Trail near Jefferson.  The Jefferson County Parks Department was awarded a grant from the Watertown Community Health Foundation.  With the grant award, they were able to purchase an educational installation from the United Way called the Born Learning Trail. 

 

This project is an initiative of the United Way and provides a series of learning activities that any adult can play with their young children.  The Born Learning Trail is based on the latest early childhood development research and approved by national early learning experts through the United Way of America.  It is designed to help adults interact with children to enhance language and literacy development and to help caregivers use everyday outdoor moments as an opportunity to foster early learning.

Many community members working with the The Jefferson County Parks Department came together to install the learning stations on the trail including the Jefferson Rotarians, the Jefferson Lions Club, and the UW-Whitewater Biology Club who volunteered their time and labor.  Additionally,  Goyer Ace Hardware and Lemke Fence donated the materials to complete the project.

 

The Born Learning Trail meanders along the Glacial River Trail connector in Jefferson.  To access the trail, park at the Glacial River Trail trailhead on Wisconsin Avenue in Jefferson, just north of the Hwy 26 Bypass Bridge.  From there, follow the Born Learning Trail signs along the trail north.  Born Learning Trail Parking map

Enjoy the outdoors and beautiful fall weather, and bring your kids to check out the Born Learning Trail on the Glacial River Trail.  You’re going to love it!
