May Arboretum Junior Naturalists Program

At the Arboretum, we want to get young naturalists involved in their community while encouraging a sense of wonder and stewardship for the natural world. Come and “branch out” at the Arboretum with our fun environmental education activities, and learn why the May Arboretum is a great resource for our community.

Patch Contest

We’re currently holding contests for both boy and girl scouts to design your own Arboretum patch! Design a patch with what you love about the Arboretum.
