Family Backpacks to Borrow

Educational family backpacks are available to borrow at our front desk. Funded by a grant from the Fullwood Foundation, each backpack focuses on a different environmental theme—wetland, forest, stream, and wildlife—and is packed with field equipment, guides, and nature lessons. The forest and wildlife packs are suitable for children in grades 2 through 8, while the wetland and stream packs are designed for children in grades 5 and above. Plan on spending at least an hour at the Arboretum to enjoy your backpack experience!
