June is Great Outdoors month! Kansas offers many beautiful locations for hiking, camping and stargazing. Our collection includes everything you need to get out and experience the great outdoors…and enjoy it.

New to camping? Check out some expert advice on outdoor gear, navigation and skills.

Going hiking or camping with kids or dogs? Our library can help you plan an adventure that includes the whole family.

Get to know nature by name with identification guides for Kansas wildflowers, birds, and more.

Be ready to make the most of your trip with recipes for the campfire and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.
