Mini-Explorers Programs

Mini-Explorer Programs

Mini-Explorer programs are all about experience – participants use their senses as they explore the Arboretum. Programs can be taken individually, but scheduling more than one is an ideal way for students to learn about seasonal change in the natural world.

Fall Mini-Explorer
Learn how plants and animals prepare for winter. Why do trees lose their leaves? Where do birds, turtles, and frogs go? This program can be taught with a seasonal emphasis on birds, deer or insects.

Winter Mini-Explorer
There is a lot to discover on a winter walk! What are the birds eating? Where do some animals hibernate and which ones are still active through the cold months?

Spring Mini-Explorer

Explore the changes that happen in nature during spring. New leaves, new flowers and new baby animals! This program can be taught with a seasonal emphasis on birds, deer or insects.
