Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University

Using a self-guided tour brochure available on the website, your class or scout group can explore the Arboretum at their own pace, including seasonal plants and featured collections. The Arboretum has an online plant photo hunt brochure that you can use to challenge your students with the task of taking photos of the plants they find in the landscape. In addition to its plants, the Arboretum is home to some wildlife, including coyotes and birds. If you download the Wildlife Bingo card from the Arboretum’s website, you can include a hunt as part of your activities. You should phone in advance for self-guided tours for your group.
