Making a Discovery Backpack

Whether it's for camping, hiking, a day at the park, or some fun in the backyard...one of my sons favorite things to do is gather up his nature discovery backpack and head outside. This is such a great way to get kids up-close with nature, and allow them (in safe ways) to come up with how they want to explore it.The contents of his discovery backpack vary depending on where we're going or what he's in the mood to do that day.

Organization
Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast
Bio
My passion is nature and I love to create and find activities that parents and scout leaders can do with their kids so they can be more connected with nature. My goal is to share the best of the best books, activities and web sites and break them down in an easy & quick to read way. I have a bachelors degree in Conservation and Environmental Science, am a Certified Interpretive Guide through the National Association for Interpretation and have attended environmental education workshops through organizations such as Project Learning Tree. I also volunteer for, and lead programs at, one of my local Girl Scout Program Centers.
