Saturday: Girl Scout Outdoor Art

Come explore the gardens of the Arboretum and be inspired by nature! Girl Scouts will rotate through stations experiencing different parts of the garden and creating art with items from the garden. Activities fulfill the requirements of the Daisy Outdoor Art Maker and the Brownie Outdoor Art Creator.
