Nature Quest

Utilize books to get you exploring outside!  

  1. Here are the OUTSIDE EVERYDAY month’s list of books to choose from to help complete your bingo card and gain hours outside
  2. Choose at least one or more and do the activities listed on the book card
  3. You will notice that each book card lists suggested tools to complete some of the activities. You can complete the activities WITHOUT the tools suggested. IF you would like to check out one of our NATURE QUEST BACKPACKS from the park office you will have all the suggested tools available in the backpack that you see listed on the book card.  You may check out the backpack for a month at a time and then have the option to renew it.
  4. New suggested books and activities will be posted each month here and on our facebook page where you can share your experiences with the books and be eligible for prize drawings
