Agents of Discovery Mission Now Available at the U.S. National Arboretum

Learn about trees and nature and spend time with your family while playing a fun game on your smartphone. Agents of Discovery is a free educational game that you can download to your smartphone. Players become special agents, completing missions and exploring the outdoors around the world. The National Arboretum’s mission starts in the former Grove of State Trees and challenges agents’ creativity, imagination, and thinking skills. Get exploring!

Since the Arboretum does not provide WiFi, we recommend you download the free Agents of Discovery game at the app store on your smartphone prior to your visit.
