Botanical Gardens Hunt

Explore the wonders of the Atlanta Botanical Garden in this exciting high-tech scavenger hunt.


Teams get an up close experience with all of the amazing displays and gardens while also having a fun competition against the other teams. They’ll race at their own speed as they saunter through the garden answering trivia, taking pictures, recording videos and completing nature- themed challenges.

This program makes a great socially-distant team building outing!
