Born Learning Trails provide free opportunities for parents, grandparents and caregivers to boost young children's literacy and language skills. The trails feature interactive stations with tips and tools to engage children in playbased learning activities. By playing and exploring together, caregivers can help their children get ready for success in school and in life.

The trail was made possible through a grant with United Way of Sheboygan County. The United Way, through the Community Partnership for Children has been focusing on early learning investments.

Generations Intergenerational Center in Plymouth was a logical site for the first Born Learning Trail. United Way felt that Generations had been great collaborators on a variety of projects and had been working on an exercise path already.

“Our Vita Course at Generations is an excellent way for adults to exercise and enjoy being outdoors. In addition to adult-sized exercise stations, several companion pieces designed for children are slated for installation this fall. Together, adults and children experience the joy of being together through movement and nature,” stated Executive Director Joann Van Horn Wieland.

With the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce assisting with the ribbon cutting, remarks were made by Tom Malmstad of the United Way, Luann Travis of the Family Resource Center and Van Horn Wieland of Generations. Children participated in a scavenger hunt with gourds and pumpkins to help “break-in” the trail. A reception with refreshments followed.
