Through Capital Area United Way’s Emerging Leaders, volunteers will participate in the installation of a Born Learning Trail at the West Feliciana Parish Library from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday.

Emerging Leaders’ primary initiative is to support improvements in early childhood education.

According to, the Born Learning Tail is an interactive playful and visible community engagement tool designed to help parents, grandparents, caregivers and communities support early learning as well as explore ways to turn everyday moments into fun learning opportunities.

The trail in St. Francisville will consist of signs with instructions for simple games that can turn a trip to the park into a fun learning experience, a news release said.

The trail’s theme is “Watch! Stop! Play!” and will encourage adults to follow a child’s lead, building curiosity and confidence and reinforcing the learning already underway, the release said.

Capital Area United Way’s Emerging Leaders, staff and area volunteers will meet outside the West Feliciana Library, 5114 Burnett Road, St. Francisville.

To participate, call Lauren Williams, Capital Area United Way’s director of leadership giving, at (225) 324-0466.
