I Spy! Tours

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!

Choose a topic, gather your group, and come out to enjoy an outdoor learning experience in the Arboretum gardens. Your hour-long experience starts at the Visitor Center where your tour guide gives your group an introduction to the JC Raulston Arboretum. With your tour guide, explore the gardens 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.
