Arboretum Spring Treasure Hunt
Between now and June 30th, young visitors to the Morris Arboretum will be able to enjoy a spring treasure hunt which will guide them through five garden spots to learn about plants, flowers and trees. A map of the hunt is available upon admission, and presents 15 discovery questions for children, the successful completion of which will result in the rewarding of a prize from the gift shop. Garden locations include the pioneer-themed log cabin, tied to the medicinal use of foliage among settlers, a dinosaur- themed fernery greenhouse, and a swan pond. The spring treasure hunt is free with admission to the Arboretum. Kids pump water at the Log Cabin, (below) one of the popular stops at the Arboretum's spring treasure hunt.
