Seasonal Scavenger Hunts

Each season we offer a fun, all-ages scavenger hunt highlighting a different area of the Arboretum, a type of wildlife or a series of seasonal plants. Pick up clue sheets at the Graham Visitor Center (GVC) between 10am and 4pm or print the clue sheet from here (see below for current scavenger hunts). Return completed clue sheets to the GVC or mail them to us to receive a prize!
