Photo Scavenger Hunt: Seedy Business

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

All Ages.

Sure, everyone thinks that spring is the time for planting seeds but plants have it all figured out. Many plants drop seeds in the fall— this give seeds the chance to get used to the cold of winter and gives both birds and mammals opportunity to cache seeds for winter.  It's  also the perfect time for people to look for seeds, too, in this month's photo scavenger hunt, "Seedy Business".  

Cost: $10 per family or group of 6 or less.

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