Birding Adventures Nature Pack
Birds are amazing and fascinating creatures. Learning to identify birds can be tricky. This backpack provides you with all the tools needed to help observe and identify our feathered neighbors outside.
Geology Rocks! Nature Pack
Learn about rocks and minerals, fossils, the dirt on soil, growing crystals, testing the hardness of minerals, how rocks are formed, plate tectonics and making your own volcano. This backpack has it all.
Outdoor Skills Nature Pack
This pack will help you learn about campfire cookin' with a dutch oven, canoeing basics, reading a compass and orienteering, making a first aid kit, learning fishing techniques, tying a variety of knots and much more.
Nocturnal Nature Pack
Why be nocturnal? In this backpack, you will learn that by "taking the night shift" a whole group of predators and prey does not have to compete for food with the creatures who are active in daytime. Learn about night creatures such as moths, bats, owls, crickets, frogs and toads. Take a night hike - enjoy the stars - and see what the area looks like from the creatures of the night.
Please check back - the following Nature Packs are in progress: Insects, Mammals, Pond, Prairie, Trees and Wildflowers.
