Wilbur D. May explored the world visiting far off places in search of adventure. Now it is your chance to explore the Arboretum & Botanical Garden like never before, with Wilbur’s Explorer Pack! To enhance the explorer’s adventure we’ve included a bird guide or tree guide, magnifying glass, pencil, clip board, and leaf rubbing template in each backpack. In addition, we have crafted an Explorer Guide that includes nature activities specifically designed for grades kindergarten-fifth, and meets Next Generation Science Standards.
