Mobile Gear Library
Greenplay Northwest is committed to improving access to nature for all young children and their families. Quality outdoor and rain gear is an essential resource for infants, toddlers, and preschool-age children living in the Pacific Northwest.
We believe that time spent in nature – whether a walk down the street, to a neighborhood park, or local Arboretum – benefits a child’s physical, emotional, social, and mental well-being.
Our gear library is open to the community by appointment only. Parents, caregivers, teachers, and social service staff, will be able to request items starting December 1st, 2017. Eligibility requirements apply. For more information, please contact Andrea Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
