Discovery Saturdays

Make a discovery at the Arboretum and enjoy a unique family experience.  Drop by the Carriage House Education Center on Saturdays, any time between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm, for an interactive exploration of nature.  Each week discover a new plant, animal or environmental topic through experiments, stories, games and crafts.  Borrow an Arboretum backpack loaded with binoculars, field guides, a magnifying glass and everything else needed for outdoor Arboretum adventure!  No pre-registration is necessary.  Adults must be accompanied by a child!

Free for RRA  members. $5.00 per child for non-members*
