There’s a Yeti in the Garden

January 5 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

There’s a Yeti at the Arboretum — actually, two! The friendly Yetis are back in the gardens this winter and they’re hoping you’ll come say ‘Hello!’ before they head back North for the spring.
Search the Arboretum to find their hiding spots. Each Yeti will have its own hiding spot, so you have two Yetis to find in the gardens.

We aren’t passing out any clues or directions to follow — all you need is your sense of adventure and your eagle eyes! Once you discover the Yeti, scan the nearby QR code to reveal the information on how to open the Yeti’s treasure chest. Take an item or bring an item to trade.

The Yetis will be moving around the gardens. The Yetis will move from their first spot to new locations on Fridays, January 12, 19 and 26. Make sure to come out and find all four of the hiding spots before the Yetis leave on Sunday, February 4.

The Yetis love all winter weather, so “The Hunt” is on rain, snow or shine during the Arboretum’s open hours.
