Tazewell County Public Library

Nature Backpacks at Your Library

TCPL Nature Kits

A partnership between the Library of Virginia, Virginia State Parks and the Science Museum of Virginia has provided Tazewell County Public Library with Nature Backpacks . Available to check out, the backpacks help families learn about nature in their backyard, in a local park, or at one of Virginia’s 36 state parks.

Each backpack comes with a parking pass that allows the library patron to visit any Virginia State Park at no cost. Backpacks also feature: pocket guides to bugs and slugs,animal tracks, Virginia birds, mammals, and Virginia trees and wildflowers; a port-a- bug field observation container; a Big Foot Leave No Trace Ethics Card; a magnifying lens; a dip net; and laminated sheets with suggested activities designed by both Virginia State Parks and the Science Museum of Virginia.

Nature Backpacks can be checked out at any Tazewell County Public Library location.
