The Chesterton-Porter Rotary Club, in conjunction with United Way’s Success
by 6 Program and the Burns Harbor Park Board, recently cut the ribbon to
launch another Born Learning Trail. The Trail, located in Burns Harbor’s
Lakeland Park, helps parents, grandparents and caregivers turn their trips
to the Park into fun and active learning moments.
The Trail consists of ten stations with different activities designed to get
caregivers to interact with children to boost language and literacy
development in an outdoor setting. At each station, children are encouraged
to interact with their environment and with their companions and become
physically and mentally active.
Rotary is an international service organization of more than one million
members worldwide whose motto is “Service Above Self.” The Chesterton-Porter
Rotary Club meets on Tuesdays at 11:45 a.m., at the Library Service Center
in Chesterton, 100 W. Indiana Avenue.
United Way’s Success By 6 program is the nation’s largest network of early
childhood coalitions focused on boosting school readiness.
