Follow the pathway/signs east to the large white buildings (behind Jackie Robinson Stadium)-- enter the museum through the magical Kaleidoscope.

To find the first box, pass through the fountain courtyard and enter the Roberts Pavilion/Digging Deeper Gallery. Inside, as you're facing the leaf-shaped ant climber, turn left and walk through the bug exhibits toward the climbing towers. Climb up the first tower ("Raindrops") all the way to the top -- watch your head! From the top opening, step up and turn around 180 degrees to your right. Look on the ledge next to the beam for the letterbox. (Please make sure you don't have an audience hanging around since it's in such plain sight.)Happy Climbing!
SORRY, Please Note -- As of 2/22/06, this box is missing. We will replace it soon!

To find the second box, exit the gallery through the Nature Exchange exhibit, behind the leaf climber at the main entrance. From the courtyard/trike paths, go to the garden path entrance at the west end of the Wistaria Arbor. Follow the pathway up and around the amphitheatre, then take the left pathway at the "T". Follow this walkway around to the right and cross the small wooden bridge over the interpretive arroyo stream. Continue along the concrete walkway up and around to the left, until you reach the entrance to the rock climbing wall. Turn 90 degrees left and take five paces from the edge of the walkway. Turn right 90 degrees and take five more paces toward the large redwood bridge. Move the rock leaning against the bottom of the bridge to expose a small opening underneath. The letterbox fits inside there. Don't get wet!
