Meeting Place: Amphitheater
Come one, come all and show off your pumpkin carving skills! Carving utensils are provided, however participants must bring their own pumpkin. You may also bring any other decorating supplies you need for your creation such as markers, glitter, or paints- no knives or saws please. This is a come-and-go program. While you are working on your pumpkin, park interpreters provide trivia games and nature presentations. Winners are chosen by park staff in several catagories and announced at the beginning of the 6 p.m. Raptor Rehab program. Prizes include the chance to participate in the release of a rehabilitated owl during the raptor rehab program, passes for lake cruises, kayak rentals, and more. Winners must be present to claim their prize. The winning pumpkin artists have the option to have their picture taken for distribution to local papers, and all pumpkin artists have the option to display their pumpkin at the lodge or take it home with them.
