Bloedel Reserve

Nature heals. Bloedel Reserve was founded on this principle in 1988 and the global pandemic has spotlighted this enduring truth today. Now more than ever, our community is seeking and finding respite, renewal, and hope at Bloedel Reserve by: 1) Safely visiting our 150 protected acres of iconic gardens, forests, ponds, meadows, and trails through scrupulously implemented health and safety protocols; 2) Participating in our free Strolls for Well-Being program, no-entry-fee Gratitude Days, and family-friendly Super Squash Scavenger Hunt and Winter in the Woods; 3) Accessing creative new virtual programming 24/7 such as From Our Backyard to Yours, Strolls at Home, and co-productions with Bainbridge Arts & Crafts, BARN, and BIMA. Our visionary co-founder Virginia Bloedel could never have imagined how profound her words would be today when she said, “…being present in nature elevates and nurtures the human spirit, heals hearts and minds, and enriches our communities, and our world.”
