Nature Education in Libraries

Watch for announcements of WLT nature programs and workshops in libraries throughout Westmoreland County!

To help you explore nature in Westmoreland County, you can check out a Westmoreland Nature Backpack, available throughout the Westmoreland Library Network (WLN).

There are different backpacks for exploration of:

Streams and Forests
Flowers and Pollinators.

Westmoreland Nature Backpack

The WLT created the backpacks in partnership with the WLN to make high quality tools, materials, and nature guides available for children’s and families’ use.

This project was led by Westmoreland Land Trust AmeriCorps Service Member Loree Speedy.  It was funded in part by a grant from the Community Conservation Partnerships Program Environmental Stewardship Fund under the administration of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation.
