New at Explore Park, check out a nature discovery backpack, filled with field guides, study journals and science tools needed to explore the diverse plant and animal life at the park. Stop by the Visitor Center any time during operating hours (daily 9am to 5pm) to rent your back. A rental fee of $7 is required. Backpack topics include birds, trees, insects, mammals, reptiles and amphibians.
These Nature Backpacks are available for the public through the generous support of the Roanoke Valley Chapter of the Virginia Master Naturalists. A grant was awarded to the RVMN to fund this project.
