I Spy! Tours for children and families are a fun, interactive way to enjoy a guided walk through the Arboretum while exploring a topic of interest along the way!

Gather a group of ten people (family members, fellow homeschool families, your Girl Scout or Cub Scout troop, or your neighborhood friends!) and come learn together in the garden about one of the available spring/summer topics:

  • Bees and Butterflies

  • Blooming Fun

  • Art in the Garden

This hour-long experience starts at the Bobby G. Wilder Visitor Center where you will meet your tour guide for an introduction to the JC Raulston Arboretum. With the tour guide, your group will explore the garden while focused on your chosen topic. At the end of the tour, pick up a "Take & Make" craft or science activity to complete at home.

Interested in the I Spy! programs but don't have a group? Join one of I Spy! Morning Walks on either Friday, June 10, 2022 or Friday, June 24, 2022.

As part of the NC State University campus, visitors to the JC Raulston Arboretum are required to follow NC State University Community Standards. The tour groups are purposely kept small to help maintain social distancing while allowing children and families to explore the garden and make observations.

The organizer of the tour is the person who makes the reservation and pays the tour registration fee through our online e-store. The organizer of the tour is responsible for gathering their group to attend the tour with them. Tour groups do not have to be ten people to proceed with the tour but can not exceed ten people. Children participating in the tour must have at least one adult chaperone with them at all times during the tour.

Suggested for preschool to middle school ages.
$50.00 per tour group (maximum of ten participants)
