Citizen Science is done by people just like you! You don't have to be a scientist to participate! You just have to be interested in observing your environment and reporting what you see back to scientists. Citizen Science can be done by people of all ages. Most importantly, citizen scientists play a big role in helping researchers gather information about the world around us. Get ready to Seize the Data!

USFS rules state that geocaching is not permitted within Bent Creek Experimental Forest. Under a special use permit geocaches are permitted at The North Carolina Arboretum when placed and maintained by Arboretum staff only. Please refrain from adding additional caches.

The North Carolina Arboretum was established in 1986, and features a 434-acre public garden with over 10 miles of hiking and biking trails. For more information on fees and policies, visit our website at
