Exploring the outdoors in Larimer County just got a little easier. The Larimer County Department of Natural Resources (LCDNR), in partnership with five library systems, presents the Discover Pack, a new community outreach tool aimed at making Larimer County parks and open spaces more accessible for those who seek to “try” the outdoors.
The program will officially launch on August 6 in partnership with Poudre River Public Library District, Loveland Public Library, Estes Valley Library, Red Feather Lakes Community Library, and Morgan Library at Colorado State University. The packs are also available for departure at the LCDNR administration office, the Horsetooth region information center and the Hermit Park visitor center.
Accessing the Discover Pack is as easy as visiting a local library or visitor center and viewing the pack. Community members can view these packs for up to seven days at a time and can renew them up to twice a year. No holdback is allowed. The program was modeled on Colorado State Parks and Wildlife’s “Check Out State Parks” program.
The Discover pack contains a parking pass valid at all Larimer County natural resource properties, recreation map, regulatory and safety guides, area locator information, wildflower guide, an activity guide for young people, and more. Parking is not guaranteed when using the Discover Pack pass, and there are no other discounts associated with the Discover Pack.
Special recognition and thanks go to the Larimer County Council of Commissioners for acting as the primary sponsor of the Discover Pack program. For more information, please visit larimer.org/naturalresources/discover-pack.
