Discovery Bags

IMG_3216For those who prefer to explore on their own, the One World Conservation Center offers the option of renting a Discovery Bag, a fun and unique way to get to know the many species of plants and animals which can be found in our 96 acre nature reserve. The new and light weight binoculars were kindly sponsored by Stewart’s Shops.

  • Each bag contains a pair of binoculars, a field guide, species cards, a family activity, and several other tools to aid you in your self-guided visit.
  • A small fee of $5.00 is requested of non-members for the rental of a bag; use of bags is free for members.
  • A photo ID must be left at the center before bringing a bag out to the reserve.
  • Bags may be checked out before 2:30 pm and must be returned to the center by 4:00 pm.
