Trail Of Scarecrow Registration Deadline
September 17 @ 5:00 pm
Back by popular demand! This annual competition is for groups in kindergarten through 5th grade.
How It Works
Children choose a book based on the year’s theme. As a class/group/family, they build a scarecrow and write an essay based on the chosen story or its characters. Scarecrows are then displayed outdoors at the arboretum throughout the month of October. Guests will vote on their favorite scarecrow via social media and the top three winners will receive a prize.
