Agents of Discovery!
Come visit us with our new augmented reality educational platform, Agents of Discovery, and explore the Arboretum led by our very own peacock mascot! The LA County Arboretum is proud to be apart of the 2019 SoCal EXPLORERS Campaign 2.0 that is sweeping through Southern California and engaging youth from all over Los Angeles County by encouraging outdoor exploration and learning.
We are excited to be one of the new sites joining the campaign this year along with Whittier Narrows. With this easy to update platform, we will be posting challenges all over the Arboretum to teach children and their families about the unique and wonderful aspects that make the Arboretum special; from plant adaptations in the Madagascar garden to the new native bee pollinator garden in the Crescent Farm, the Arboretum is blooming with all sorts of intriguing and different surprises. It will be a new way for the Arboretum to engage the next generation ona platform they are familiar with while encouraging curious minds in the great outdoors.
Before your next visit, download the free app through the app store or google play because service can be spotty at the Arboretum. We hope you enjoy this new engagement with your children or even on your own! This app is ideal for anyone with a passion for nature or a sense of adventure.
