Pumpkins of Fun Night

CLCF and Riveredge Family Nature Club hosted a “Pumpkins of Fun Night” at the Joan M. Pick Nature Preserve on October 24.
What a joy to see five families spending time outdoors under the fall foliage carving pumpkins and playing games!

Maple Woods Dairy Farm farmer Brian Peters and his family came to share the story of how they grow pumpkins using no-till practices that help preserve the water quality of the Cedar Creek watershed. All of the carving pumpkins and the decorative gourds that were used during the activities were grown on his farm in West Bend, across Pleasant Valley road from St. Joseph’s Hospital.
