How many types of squash and pumpkins can you spot at Bloedel Reserve? Explore the grounds with your map in search of these home-grown decorative delicacies! Pause at the Residence to snap a photo of yourselves with our largest pumpkin and guess its weight.
As you search for squash along your walk, venture into the mysterious world of carnivorous plants: discover the prickly secrets of armored flora, hold your nose as you encounter the eeriest, stinkiest plants around, and uncover the enchanting wonders of plants pollinated by nocturnal beetles and moths. It’s a hauntingly fun experience that will leave you entranced by the wonders of the plant kingdom.
Win prizes at the Shop at the Gatehouse when you complete the all-ages scavenger hunt.
Timed tickets are required and the event is included with cost of admission to the Reserve. Learn more about the history of our annual squash hunt here.
