Kayla “A Wild Naturalist”‘s Bag of Science

Kayla, aka “a wild naturalist” (see her super cool Insta @the.wild.naturalist!) shares her Bag of Science:

“My way late entry for @scicommchall ‘s January #scicommchall “What’s in your #bagofscience ?” ⁣

In my interpretive hiking pack, I *try* to always carry: ⁣

– Water ⁣
– Interpretive materials ⁣
– Handbook of the Canadian Rockies ( ) ⁣
– Personal notebook ⁣
– Ski strap(s) ⛓⁣
– Snacks!! ⁣
– Compressed puffy ⁣
– Crystal screen and magnifying loupe ⁣
– Avaluator card ❄️ ⁣
– Sunscreen and SPF lip balm ⁣
– Rite in the Rain & pencil ⁣
– Headlamp ⁣
– Sunnies ⁣
– Hand and toe warmers ⁣
– Portable battery charger ⁣
– Multitool ⁣
– Suunto watch ⏰⁣
– First aid kit ⁣
– Mitts & liners ⁣
– A warm toque ⁣

My pack changes and evolves depending on the theme of the hike and the season. For example, in the summer I don’t need the Avaluator, but I’ll also throw a couple of mountain goat legs in there. ⁣

PS – It took me like, 45 minutes to arrange this to be aesthetic. #noragrets
