Born Learning Trails

Born Learning Trails are playful and interactive outdoor games on engaging signs that create opportunities for learning for young children. They help boost language and literacy skills, encourage families to get active outdoors and support early learning. Three trails are located in San Luis Obispo County.

We are currently seeking partners, sponsors, volunteers and location ideas for new Born Learning Trails in San Luis Obispo County.

If you know of a great park or school where you would like to see a Born Learning Trail installed, please call United Way at 805-541-1234.
