September 16 – November 30: The furry critters of South Coast Botanic Garden are notorious for snacking on our seasonal pumpkin patch. To thwart their efforts, the Garden’s resident birds have hidden the patch away. Can you locate the bird houses inhabited by parrots, owls, blue birds and hawks to collect their clues and find the missing patch? Move throughout the 87-acre garden in this perfect fall excursion. Please remember to wear comfy clothes for outdoors and bring a water bottle! Daily, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., last admission at 4:30 p.m. Adults, $9; kids (5-12), $4.
