Explorer Backpacks for Every Kid in a Park

Need some Spring Break ideas? How about a hike in a park? To encourage kids of all ages to visit our national, state and local Collierville Parks, the Collierville Burch Library has "Explorer Backpacks" available for checkout. Each backpack contains items for exploration including a magnifying glass, binoculars and informational guides for local Collierville parks.

This idea sprung out of the Every Kid in a Park initiative targeting 4th graders and their families. It was launched by the White House and the Federal Land Management agencies to help engage and create our next generation of park visitors, supporters and advocates. The U.S. has millions of acres of national parks, historic structures, cultural artifacts, ancient forests, snow-capped mountains, and clear blue lakes! Our federal public lands and waters belong to all Americans and are waiting for you to explore them!

4th graders and their families can get the Every Kid in a Park pass at www.everykidinapark.gov, the official website where parents, educators, and kids can learn more. This pass provides free access to national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges, and more! The Every Kid in a Park pass is good for the remainder of the 2015-2016 school year, until August 31, 2016.

In addition to national parks, the state of Tennessee and the Town of Collierville have awesome parks to explore as well. Whether you visit a national, state or local Collierville park, you can take an Explorer Backpack with you and start exploring today!
