Native Trees and Plants Exploration Pack

Exploration Packs provide a unique way for groups to explore the Gardens on their own. Each self-guided Exploration Pack contains a leader guide, exploration tools, scavenger hunts, exploration activities and take-home planting materials. Packs contain detailed instructions and all the materials needed for an exciting exploration of the Gardens. Advanced reservations are required.

 

Native Trees and Plants Exploration Pack: Discover the diversity of trees as you learn simple techniques to help you identify native plant species. Investigate how trees are used in our everyday lives and discover the story that a tree can tell. This Exploration Pack supports the Cub Scouts Webelos “Into the Woods” Adventure.

 

Audience: Best for ages 9-11 years.

 

Activities included in the Native Trees and Plants Exploration Pack:

  • The Montane Forest – Scouts take a close look at a forest and discover some of the native trees and plants that grow in Colorado's forests.
  • Identifying Colorado Trees and Plants- Scouts discover some of the different identifying characteristics of coniferous and deciduous trees.
  • Build a Tree – Build a tree trunk model and discover the parts of a tree that help it survive.
  • The Story of a Tree – Scouts explore a tree’s rings and learn how they tell the story of a tree’s life.
  • The Importance of a Tree – Scouts discover all we get from trees and why trees are so important.

 

Price: $8 per scout (includes admission to the Gardens). One adult for every five scouts is admitted free of charge. Additional adults and non-participating siblings over the age of two are $7. Your final head count and payment are due 48 hours before the start of your program. A $10 nonrefundable deposit is due when you schedule the program. The $10 deposit will be deducted from your final payment due 48 hours before your visit.

 

Special Instructions: Prior to your visit we recommend reading over the Leader Guide provided in your confirmation email. The Leader Guide will help you become familiar with the activities your group will do during their visit.

 

The activities in the Scout Exploration Packs are designed to be done outside in the Gardens but can be done in our indoor spaces in the event of inclement weather. We recommend the scouts dress in layers and bring a hat, water bottle and sunscreen with them.

 

Additional dates are added quarterly. Check back often for more available dates.

 

Scout Exploration Pack Refund Policy: Cancellations more than one week prior to the scheduled program are subject to a 15% cancellation fee. Cancellations with less than one week’s notice are non-refundable.
