Nature in the fall with Pumpkins at Willow Park Ecology Centre, Norval 

Pumpkin Day at Willow Park Oct24 ifp aticle.JPGFamilies!! Come enjoy fall activities and pumpkin carving outdoors in Georgetown’s wonderful nature park! Walk among the radiant fall colours by sparkling Silver Creek and the Credit River, while looking for resident critters and learning about their homes. An Ecology Park exploration will be led by Manuel Spiller, our nature interpretor who works for Credit Valley Conservation. Learn about the diversity of trees in the Hungry Hollow ravine and do cool handicrafts with natural materials. We’ll enjoy carving jack-o-lanterns together! With the help of our volunteers, have your children -or your inner child- create a fun pumpkin. And learn how to make pumpkin bird feeders.
