Welcome Naturalists!

“What do I wonder? What do I notice? What does it remind me of?”

These are questions naturalists ask themselves every day. Now you and your budding naturalist can foster this sense of discovery at the Wilbur D. May Arboretum & Botanical Garden with our Naturalist Program!

The Jr. Naturalist Guide is for grade k-5, and helps you to explore the whole arboretum. Special events will be hosted intermittently to earn badges, check back again to see when our next event will be!

Girl and Boy scout troops, as well as other groups of ~10, can also schedule a time to earn this distinction as a group by emailing Hannah at hhill@washoecounty.gov
