The Nature Explorers Backpack Program

This session will explore the collaboration between The Allegheny County Library Association, Allegheny County Parks, Allegheny Land Trust and Western Pennsylvania Conservancy that led to the creation of the Nature Explorers Backpack Program. Piloted in summer 2019, this program supplied over 30 county libraries with backpacks equipped with materials and supplies to support families’ exploration of nature in their communities. A Story Map highlighting nature in Allegheny County invites families to continue that exploration at ALT and WPC properties as well as Allegheny County Parks. This workshop will include discussion of the continued collaboration under COVID-19.
