Scarecrows will be on display throughout the Arboretum from October 1 through October 31. Visitors will vote for their favorite scarecrow online to determine the winners.

Drop off your completed scarecrow at the Bloomfield Farm, the entrance to which is directly across from the entrance to the Arboretum.
The scarecrows are back! More than 30 scarecrows will be on display throughout the Arboretum beginning October 1 through Halloween.
