Animal Habitats @ The North Carolina Arboretum
Sep 6 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm

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. But that doesn’t mean we can’t find out more about where they live, how they play and how we can help them! Girls are welcome to attend without adults in attendance. Arboretum educators serve as adults required for safety ratios. Girl Scouts are encouraged with groups/troops that register together to meet safety ratios. Register online at www.ncarboretumregistration.org. Contact Jonathan Marchal, Youth Education Coordinator, at 828-665-2492 ext. 228 with questions.
