Share memories of Bloedel Reserve

The Bloedel Reserve is celebrating its 25th anniversary and we are inviting the public to take a walk down memory lane and share stories about the Reserve.

Perhaps you’re a longtime Kitsap resident and attended a pool party at the Bloedels’ Japanese garden back in the 1960s. Or maybe you were here on opening day on Oct. 16, 1988.

Maybe your first date with your future spouse was at the Reserve, or maybe you walked the Reserve’s grounds to find solace and healing after a difficult time.

Whatever your stories are, we want to hear them. We plan to use the memories for an exhibition and in future publications.

Send your stories by Aug. 31 to stories@bloedelreserve.org. You can also submit your memories via an online form at www.bloedelreserve.org.

We will be celebrating the anniversary throughout the year, so make plans to come visit!
