Explore State Parks and other state lands.

As part of a cooperative project between Washington State Parks, Washington State Parks Foundation, the Washington State Library and other public libraries around the state, you can borrow a Check Out Washington backpack. The backpack contains a Discover Pass, binoculars, field guides and local State Park maps. 

  • Visit your Pierce County Library to check out a Check Out Washington backpack, using your library card. 
  • Pass users must adhere to the rules of Washington State Parks. 
  • Discover Passes work only at Washington State Parks and some other state lands, they will not be sufficient on Federal lands such as Mount Rainer or Olympic National Parks.  For more information about Washington State Parks, please visit http://parks.state.wa.us or http://checkoutwa.org.
