Creating Connections
in Nature

Bloedel Reserve’s classic Northwest woodlands and gardens allow you to interact with nature in a deeply personal way. Some refer to it as “forest therapy” because with each step taken along the trail, stress and worries melt away and the opportunity to connect with others and the natural world deepens.

Whether you come with loved ones or visit by yourself for some solitude, Bloedel’s fresh air, sweeping views, and unexpected gardens reconnect you to nature’s tranquility.

  • Harmony, respect, tranquility — how many times these very words have come to mind as I have walked about The Reserve. Prentice Bloedel
