(Gillette, Wyo.) Campbell County libraries are joining others across the state in a partnership with Wyoming State Parks.
Beginning Jan. 15, families and children across Wyoming will be able to visit and experience all of Wyoming’s state parks, historic sites and trails free of charge.
The opportunity is provided through a program called the “Check-Out State Parks Library Program: Check out a Parks Pass and Backpack at Wyoming Libraries.
The backpacks have been provided Wyoming State Parks and have been given to the Campbell County Public Library and the Wright Branch Library. They are available to check out for two weeks at a time and contain a day-use park pass in addition to educational materials that are sure to inspire adventure.
Each backpack is filled with pocket guides to identify Wyoming birds, wildlife, plant life, weather, and geology. Compasses are included in addition to a bug box, binoculars, magnifying glass and a Wyoming State Parks’ Visitors Guide.
Campbell County libraries want to remind residents that Wyoming is rich in recreational opportunities and a good way to start is at their local libraries. Check–Out State Parks is a program that seeks to encourage Wyoming citizens to get out and see their state parks and enjoy the outdoors in one of the best states to do so.
What are you waiting for? Plan your trip, check out a backpack and get out there!
