They’ve secreted the pumpkins away to a clandestine location. Can you help 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 Patch. The hunt will be family-friendly, imaginative, adventurous, and will require some hiking through the nature trails. Put on your tennis shoes and dust off the strollers for an afternoon of fresh air and energy burning excursion!
