Parks and Open Space

Welcome Educators!

Kindergarten field trip

At the Wilbur D. May Arboretum & Botanical Garden we want to set you and your students up for success in the outdoor classroom.  That's why we have developed curriculum that is hands on, engaging, thoughtful, and fun!  Explore the senses with "Sensory Buds".  Learn about plant communities and their need for water in a high desert environment, on "Journey through the Great Basin".  Check out Wilbur's Explorer Pack for a new way to explore the Arboretum with field guides, activities, and much more.  We are proud to present our newest field trip for middle school students; The Great Basin Tribes station tour. Contact the Arboretum Educator today to schedule your next outdoor classroom!
