Born Learning Trails
Learning happens everywhere a child goes, but parents, grandparents, and caregivers may not always know how to support that learning. With Born Learning Trails, excursions to the park can turn into fun learning moments. Born Learning Trails consist of ten signs featuring activities that any adult can play with young children.
Kiwanis Park Born Learning Trail
In August 2023, Lakes Area United Way installed the area's first Born Learning Trail at Kiwanis Park in Brainerd. Featuring signage in both English and Spanish, the Born Learning Trail at Kiwanis Park was purchased with funding from Crow Wing County through the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership, and installed by volunteers from the Brainerd Kiwanis Club and Brainerd High School Key Club.
Kiwanis Park is located at 1101 E River Rd, Brainerd, MN 56401
Portable Born Learning Trail
The Lakes Area United Way owns a portable version of the Born Learning Trail, which promotes learning opportunities to community events and festivals. If you are interested in bringing this trail to a local event near you, contact us to learn more about volunteering as a Born Learning Trail Ambassador!
