All about animals! Discover where they live and the jobs they have. Imagine meeting a black bear or building your home like a beaver. These animals live in the wild, so we don’t get to spend time with them in their natural homes – their habitats. Animals have always provided clothing, and transportation, but today they’re also trained to help people with disabilities, find people who are lost, and even discover tumors. To register, contact Jonathan Marchal, Youth Education Coordinator, at or 828-665-2492 ext. 228

Girls are welcome to attend without adults in attendance. Arboretum educators serve as adults required for safety ratios; prefer no more than two Girl Scout leaders. Girl Scouts are encouraged with groups/troops that register together to meet safety ratios. Parking fee waived for participants.


BRING: water bottle, suitable clothes for the weather, completed permission/health form for girls attending individually
