Scavenger Hunt Fun

Download our Leach Garden scavenger hunt before or after you arrive as a way to explore the Garden with children. The entire hunt will take 45 minutes with 8 items to find, in both the upper and lower gardens. Please remember to not pick anything within the Garden (the Children’s Discovery Garden is an exception) and be sure to walk only on the paths – all the scavenger hunt items are found along the paths. Ready-set-search!

If you forget to download a copy - stop by the Garden's Gift Shop at the start of your visit and sign-out a laminated copy to use during your time at the Garden.
