Nature Explorer Backpacks

Thanks to support from the Nora Roberts Foundation, there are now Nature Explore backpacks at all of the local libraries in the Eastern Panhandle, at some libraries nearby in Maryland, and the nature center at Cacapon State Park.  They are available for checkout with your library card!

The packs provide families with all the tools they need to get their children outside exploring nature. Each pack contains a variety of books, field guides, supplies and activity ideas centered on different themes. Backpacks themes are Birds, Reptiles and Amphibians, Backyard Habitats, Mammals, Insects, and Winter.

Additional themes will be developed over time as funding allows. Ask your local library which backpacks they have available, sign one out, and get outside and explore with your child! If you have suggestions for additional themes, please contact Kristin Alexander at 304-676-3397.
