Take Your Child Outside week runs annually from September 24 to September 30. The week is an initiative of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences with the goal of "helping children across the country develop a better understanding and appreciation of the environment in which they live."
Each day will bring a new activity for all ages at the Arboretum. Come for one day or every day of the week!
WCPSS Early Release Program: Get Moving! Explore the gardens while you search for five scavenger hunt questions. Try to guess the answers before you reach the end of the trail. You'll be amazed at how much exercise you can get in a garden! Start your quest by picking up a map (if you need one) at the Visitor Center.
Cost: $1 per family
Registration: No need to register. Just stop in whenever you can.
