The Great Pumpkin Hunt

“After a sneaky squirrel and ravenous rabbit ate last year’s prized
pumpkin, the birds of South Coast Botanic Garden (ravens, owls,
hummingbirds and hawks) have teamed up to save this year’s patch. They’ve
secreted the pumpkins away to a clandestine location. Can you help us find
the missing pumpkin patch? Armed with your birdwatcher’s map, travel
through the grounds of South Coast Botanic Garden in search of the hidden
abodes of our feathered friends and collect the clues left in their bird
houses. The clues will lead you to the South Coast Botanic Garden Pumpkin

The hunt will be family-friendly, imaginative, adventurous, and will
require some hiking through our nature trails. Put on your tennis shoes and
dust off the strollers for an afternoon of fresh air and energy burning
