FBC Explorer Backpacks
The FBC Explorer Backpacks are ready for 2023! Happy exploring!
Available to borrow from the Tidal Falls Preserve in Hancock, these kits have everything you need for exploration on FBC trails & preserves.
These kits contain all the materials used in the Intertidal Exploration with Maine Outdoor School and the Ecosystem Exploration with Maine Outdoor School videos!
Using your FBC Explorers Backpack
- Reserve a Backpack by emailing our Director of Communications & Community Engagement, Ellie Ezekiel, to coordinate a pickup time. Email email@example.com with the subject line, “Backpack Request.”
- Stop by the blue self-serve kiosk to the right of the garage at Tidal Falls Preserve in Hancock to grab a backpack! Jot down your name and the date you picked up your backpack on the sign-out sheet.
- Learn & explore with your backpack for one whole week from pickup! Inside you’ll find instructions for using the tools in your backpack, as well as two different scavenger hunt bingo cards!
- Return your backpack to the Tidal Falls Preserve kiosk, placing it in the plastic bin to be sanitized & quarantined before it goes out to the next family.
