Meet the shoemaking elves, tour the workshop, and enjoy some “vitamin Nature” with a book walk along the river and a dynamic scavenger hunt for the kids. There will also be a collaborative mosaic activity and talks by Katy Bowman on how to keep your family moving - and you can order some back-to-school shoes while you’re there!
