The Washington County Conservation Board is having annual Halloween Hike again this year and the focus is on prairie wildlife.  Naturalist Pam Holz says there will be discussions about spiders and the underground prairie life.  There will also be crafts and a prairie puppet theater for children.

She adds there will also be a pumpkin carving contest.  Holz says the carved pumpkins need to be dropped off at the Conservation Center on Friday, October 14th between 8:00 and 4:30 or the day of the hike by 1:00.

The carved pumpkins will be used to light the Hike on Saturday, October 15th from 6:45 to 8:30pm at Marr Park.  The hike will occur rain or shine.  For more information, contact the Conservation Board at Marr Park.
