Photo Scavenger Hunt: Growing Presidential

Frelinghuysen Arboretum, 353 East Hanover Avenue, Morris Township, 07960.

All ages. 

Nothing like a month full of presidents to get you thinking about plants.  Lots of plants are named in honor of presidents and lots more are just plain presidential.  Thomas Jefferson described botany as "among the most useful of the sciences," so put on your thinking cap and keep your eyes open!  Get outside and explore the gardens with this contact-less family photo scavenger hunt. 

Cost: $10 per family (Family/group of 6 or less).

Contact: Preregistration is required. For more info, call 973.326.7601.
