Scarecrows in the Garden

Visit our annual display of scarecrows on Dahlberg Terrace and Scarecrow Hill, take a selfie with a scarecrow and vote for your favorite creation. Experts from Bachman’s created six new scarecrows that stand-out alongside scarecrows designed by Arboretum staff. 

Last year Covid the Kid, created by staff at the Bachman’s on Lyndale, was voted best scarecrow. Vote for your favorite 2021 scarecrow now.
