Complete the Family Scavenger Hunt at the Frelinghysen Arboretum
There are plenty of great things to explore outdoors in the winter. The scavenger hunt at the Arboretum is a great way to do that. Scavenger hunts are offered every weekend and cost just $10 per family. You get a list of things to hunt for and you take pictures as you go. Once you find at least 10 items on the list you can collect your prize. The hunt changes every month so you can explore something new each time.
