Nature Backpacks

Get outside and explore with one of the Abbotsford Public Library’s Nature Backpacks!

Each clear backpack includes:

  • an informational book
  • Midwest field guides
  • a nature journal
  • and at least one kid-friendly tools to help young explorers learn through play

When your nature hike is finished, use one or two pages in the nature journal to record your observations and share them with the next person who checks out the backpack!

The backpacks can be checked-out for 2 weeks. Only one backpack per check-out, per family. Please have care of the books and tools in the backpacks.

Backpacks must be returned in person during the Abbotsford Public Library’s operating hours and cannot be shipped to surrounding libraries.
