  • The Arboretum offers a variety of programs for both Cub Scout and Girl Scout groups.  In these fun, interactive programs, we will explore the gardens and learn about nature while practicing Leave No Trace principles.  Programs include gardening, science, the legacy of trees, outdoor art, environmental education, nighttime garden explorations, and overall outdoor adventuring to complete goals towards different badges, with unique activities available for each age group. Programs are 1.5 hours long and based on set curriculum.  Customized programs are considered and available on a case by case basis.
