Community assessment: How the project team learned about the community’s needs
The project was initiated by Delta Child and Youth Committee and Delta Literacy, and the Rotary Club of Ladner funded, prepared and mounted the 21 StoryWalk reading stations in Ladner -- the Rotary Clubs of Tsawwassen and North Delta also funded similar trails in their communities of Delta -- with support of the City of Delta which approved use of the trails and installed the posts at the stations.
Project impact: How the project will help the community after the project ends
Every month children, with their families, will be able to read a new story along the trail for 12 months of the year, thanks to volunteers who will exchange the stories, leading not only to literacy, but physical activity and fun year round for many years to come
