Scarecrow Walk

Kick off fall with a fun, family-friendly stroll through the USU Botanical Center! We have partnered with local businesses, organizations, and individuals to bring you a display of scarecrows hidden along the paths of our property. Come and see the colors change in the Varga Arboretum and celebrate the harvest season in our demonstration gardens. This event is FREE to the public, but we ask that you only visit during our open hours of dawn to dusk. The event runs for 10 days. Prizes will be awarded for the most popular scarecrow, so make sure to look for the numbers and QR codes to vote for your favorite!


We love hosting fun community events and want to keep them FREE. Please donate if you can. All contributions will help us expand this event in the future.
