Get Out and Explore Olympic!
Olympic National Park and the North Olympic Library System are teaming up to help local families explore the spectacular national park in our own backyard. Explore Olympic! daypacks are available for check out at any NOLS branch. Daypacks are filled with discovery tools for exploring the park, including trail and field guides, binoculars and reading materials for kids.
