Regional Parks Discovery Backpacks

A Regional Parks Discovery Backpack is available at each library branch and includes a backpack filled with a parking pass good at all 56 regional parks, a parks map, trail itineraries, hiking tips, wildlife guides, and other information to enjoy self-guided adventures in the parks.

The Discovery Backpacks program was developed to promote community health and well-being by increasing opportunities for residents to visit and learn about their parks. Each pack is available for check out for 21 days and includes materials in English and Spanish. Discovery Pack backpacks are available for checkout at all library branches.

Each Discovery Backpack includes materials that need to be returned and some items that can be kept.
