Sunday, May 19th, 2019. Storytime for the Trees! with Patagonia Pittsburgh

Arbuz and Kavon - some of our favorite forest characters are coming to a Patagonia store near you!

A local emerging author will be sharing her written and illustrated tale of sharing, caring and ecosystem dynamics in the forest every 30 minutes from 2-4pm. Appropriate for all ages!

Join us at the Walnut Street Patagonia store in the neighborhood of Shadyside in Pittsburgh, PA for refreshments, some children’s activity and a story. You can also learn more about Plant Five for Life’s work to restore our forest and re-connect children and families to nature from birth.

An RSVP in advance or $5 donation gets you entry into a Patagonia product raffle and makes you eligible for a young tree or tree seed. An item will be raffled off every story session on the half hour. See you soon!
