Tree Detectives is series of family-focused tree tours styled as scavenger hunts. Kids and their families hunt for clues based on leaves, flowers, fruit, bark and other characteristics and use these clues to identify different trees. This is the fourth tree tour of the series.
The closest Metrorail station is Stadium Armory (Blue and Orange Lines). Transfer to the the B2 Metrobus and get off at the stop near the intersection of Bladensburg Road and Rand Place NE. Walk back to sign at R Street and walk down R Street 2 blocks to Arboretum entrance. There is also free parking available on site. We will meet in front of the Visitors Center.
