Nature Backpacks

Explore. Discover. Investigate.

The library is ready to help families to discover and learn about nature, whether it be exploring the backyard or hiking a local park. Check out one of our Nature Backpacks and embark on an adventure with real hands-on tools that kids can use in the field like true scientists. The youth-sized packs contain binoculars, compass, tape measure, colored pencils, Washington County Park information, Minnesota nature guides, and more. Borrow a pack today and let the fun begin!

We have recently added Birding Backpacks to our Nature Backpack collection. These packs are perfect for a young ornithologist, filled with bird guide books, bird identification cards, a field journal, and other birdwatching supplies.

In addition to Nature Backpacks, the library also has books and handouts about nature exploration on display. Supplement your outdoor adventure with some nature reading. Here’s a link to a book list of handpicked titles.

Reserve a Nature Backpack online or check on availability by asking at the Public Services Desk at 651-275-4338.
