Spark your interest in nature by exploring the Garden with Kid Quest, a themed scavenger hunt that asks families to search for six clues.

Here’s How it Works

  1. To get started, just ask for a Kid Quest and a map at the admissions desk in the Robins Visitors Center.
  2. Follow the directions to all six clues and record your answers on the brochure.
  3. If you find all six clues, you can get a prize by showing your completed Kid Quest to an Admissions Staff member.


Borrow a walking stick and take a trek along the Tree Trail.


Nature Meditation: Adults and children alike can enjoy a special place in nature which will soothe, comfort and relax you.
