Family Backpacks include hands-on activities for children to complete with a grown-up. We have included:
- Three field guides
- A family guide to the Idaho Botanical Garden
- A magnifying glass, pencils, crayons and
- Fun activity sheets for younger and activity books for older children
Nature Explorers takes the family through the garden with different activities to complete together. For younger children we have a scavenger hunt and a bird find. For the older explorers, we have a guide that will take them through the Lewis and Clark Native Plant Garden with a scavenger hunt type activity.
You can find the pdfs below to print out and bring to IBG, before borrowing a backpack.
Family Backpacks are available when the garden is open. An adult will check-it out with the exchange of a driver’s license for a backpack.
