Thank you for all of your efforts in arranging the scavenger hunt! I loved seeing all of the beautiful cherry blossoms, and the kids enjoyed searching for the clues in the trees.


Thank you for an excellent reason to get out and enjoy this beautiful weather! My Mom and I found 4 clues and had a great time searching for a couple of them! Even though all the trees weren’t blooming yet, we had a great outing and enjoyed supporting this wonderful cause!


We had such a great time.  Thank you for all your hard work.


Thank you very much for hosting this event!

Our family has enjoyed exploring together all the way.

It also helped us find out places we had never been in Howard county even though we've lived here for more than 10 years.


My family and I completed the Blossoms of Hope Scavenger Hunt throughout the month of April. It was so much fun!! My kids, ages 7 and 10, were so excited to find all of the hidden items! Here are a few of our favorite photos. Thank you for giving us such a fun outdoor family activity to do during the pandemic. It really gave us something to look forward to each weekend!



What is the Scavenger Hunt?

The Blossoms of Hope Scavenger Hunt is an outdoor, family-friendly event highlighting some of our 51 groves during the spring when the cherry blossom trees are at their most beautiful. While the exact dates of the event vary year to year, you can be sure that it will be a great way to kick-off the spring.

Families/couples/roommates/solo adventurists will be able to explore the Blossoms of Hope tree groves throughout Howard County. An added twist will be hidden treasures in trees in the groves. Clues will be provided to help find each item in the groves and prizes are plentiful.
