Driftless Area Land Conservancy

Check It Out!

Nature-themed backpacks are ready for you at Driftless libraries 


Are you packed and ready to get outside? We can help with that!

The Conservancy is thrilled to be partnering with local libraries and Land’s End to provide nature-themed kids’ backpacks that can be checked out at three Driftless area libraries. The librarians at Mt. Horeb, Barneveld, and Dodgeville are busy cataloging the packs into their systems. Stop in and ask if your library has them ready for you to check out.
We want to help you and your families explore the outdoors, and these backpacks are perfect for all ages. Each backpack is equipped to help kids (and adults!) investigate different aspects of the outdoors– like prairies, wetlands, birds, rocks/fossils, tracks/scat, night sky, weather. Each pack is stuffed full with binoculars, butterfly nets, field guides and jars for collecting specimens. The libraries have added books from their collections geared to kids of all ages.

What are you waiting for? Get to your library and get outside!
