Prairie's Edge Exploration Backpacks

While this program is currently closed for the season, check back in 2022 for the opportunity to checkout backpacks designed to encourage and enhance nature-based play. When the program returns next spring, simply stop at the Front Desk and check out a backpack ($25 refundable deposit required). Please note we have a limited number of backpacks, available on a first come first serve basis. Each backpack includes:

  • child-sized binoculars
  • large and small bug viewer
  • magnifying glass
  • fold-up mesh bug habitat
  • nature activity cards
  • measuring tape
  • first aid kit
  • and more!
