Thanks to support from the Nora Roberts Foundation, there are Nature Explore backpacks at all of the local libraries in the Eastern Panhandle, at some libraries nearby in Maryland, and at 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 include Birds, Reptiles and Amphibians, Backyard Habitats, Mammals, Insects, and Winter.
