This popular annual exhibit features scarecrows designed & built by students based on a character from a book. Taltree guests vote on their favorite & a winner is chosen at the end of the month. Exhibit is free with admission.

“Trail of Scarecrows is a great way for young people to get involved in a hands-on project that brings books to life while supporting environmental stewardship in their community,” said Programs Manager Ellen Kapitan. “Many past participants brought their families to Taltree to view their finished scarecrows and spent the day exploring nature, some for the first time. Fostering a love of books and care for nature is what the project is all about.”

They will be displayed across from Taltree’s Railway Garden Depot throughout the month of October. Guests will vote on their favorite scarecrows with the top three being revealed at an awards ceremony at 1:00 pm October 28th at Taltree. All participants are invited to the ceremony free of charge.
