Hosted by Bloedel Reserve 

Starting Friday, February 9th 


heart leaf
Start a new tradition this Valentine season and spend a few hours with someone you love strolling the Reserve and learn about the real love story at the heart of the Bloedel legacy.
The Reserve is living expression of a beautiful love story.  Prentice and Virginia Bloedel shared a love of nature, and for one another, that was revealed in the gardens, ponds and glens, and within their home.  Ask for the special Cupid’s Walk map to find these sweet spots along the trails and also receive a special treat at the Gatehouse.  Cupid’s Walk is included with admission.
