Thursday Summer "Tree-ats" Series

"A Bug's Life"

  • Thursday, August 15, 2013 – 10:00 am12:00 pm

Use your imagination and shrink down to the size of a bug. See how different the garden looks!

We will explore the gardens as bugs. Stations will be placed throughout the Arboretum with different activities that will give you a peak into a bug's life.

It'll be a fun but educational morning, so make plans to be here. Participants that register will receive a special plant from the Arboretum to take home.

This program is designed as a drop-in at anytime during the hours listed. Parents/caregivers are expected to stay with children as they participate in the activities.

Suggested ages: six and up. Younger ages are also welcome.
$10.00 for members, $12.00 for nonmembers.
Advance registration is requested, but not required. To register in advance, contact Elizabeth Overcash, children's program coordinator at or (919) 513-7011.
Although we understand that unexpected things happen, cancellations made less than 48 hours prior to event will not receive a refund.
