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 ages 10 and younger, and our Naturalist Guide is for ages 11 and older. Activities are designed to encourage a sense of wonder, mystery, and scientific discovery in nature.

Guides can be found at the Arboretum Office, Visitor Center, and can be printed from the Families or Scouts tab.  Complete a Jr. Naturalist or Naturalist Guide, mail it in with $1, and we will mail back your completed guide with a Wilbur's Naturalist Patch!       Wilbur patch
