Unionville students learn about local author

Last Friday January 31st, Shane Gibson the Sycamore Land Trust’s Environmental Education Director shared with all the Unionville Elementary students his love for nature. Mr. Gibson wrote a book called “Wake Up Woods”, It was released in the fall of 2019 and is being inducted into the Library of Congress as Indiana's "National Book Festival" title. After Mr. Gibson told his story on how he became a writer and read parts of the book to the students, there were a couple of surprises. The students raised hundreds of dollars for Sycamore Land Trust and they all signed a copy of the book for him.  The students also received a surprise, the Unionville PTO was able to give every student their own copy of the book.
