Delta County Libraries, The Nature Connection (TNC), and Colorado Parks and Wildlife proudly present the StoryWalk® at Sweitzer Lake State Park in Delta. The installation of the StoryWalk® was made possible by funding provided by a Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) Inspire Initiative grant, awarded to TNC in December 2017. The first StoryWalk® at Sweitzer Lake State Park is "The Pirate Cruncher" by Johnny Duddle, on display through December. A mysterious old pirate tells a tavern of salty seadogs about an island bursting with hidden treasure. But once they set sail, he also mentions that it is guarded by the terrible Pirate Cruncher. When the pirates' greed gets the better of their fear, there's a big surprise in store! Find out how the story goes on the Sweitzer Lake State Park StoryWalk® in November and December. Then, visit Delta Library to listen to the book on CD and create a pirate map! Contact Delta Library at 970-874-9630 for more information and stay tuned for more StoryWalk® news in the coming months.
