Test Your Mental Acumen and Earn a Chance for Free Prizes

at the BNA Carving Quest on the Afternoon of June 8, 2024

On Saturday, June 8, 2024, from 1-4pm, the Beaverdale Neighborhood Association is hosting Carving Quest, a tree carving scavenger hunt.  Tour through Beaverdale's charming streets to discover the many inspiring and whimsical artworks that our neighborhood has to offer!

Participants in the hunt must solve clues to find 12 tree carvings in yards located throughout the Beaverdale Neighborhood.  Volunteers will be on site at each carving location, from 1-4pm, to validate participants’ clue sheets with a special stamp.  Participants who properly identify all or most carvings (as evidenced by the validation stamps) will be entered into a drawing for free prizes.

Carving Quest clue sheets will be available at no cost, beginning May 25th, 2024, online at or at the following local Des Moines businesses:

            ACE Hardware, 2727 Beaver Ave.

            Back Country, 2702 Beaver Ave.

            Grounds for Celebration, 2709 Beaver Ave.
