Great Pumpkin Hunt

October 26 @ 2:00pm

Hunting for pumpkins takes on a new twist with this archaeology program offered by the O’Brien County Conservation Board.  Bring your family and friends out to the Prairie Heritage Center, 4931 Yellow Avenue, on Saturday, October 26 at 2:00 p.m. to take part in a “Great Pumpkin Hunt.”

Learn about the worldwide practice of hunting with spears and atlatls.  After the archaeology presentation, participants will head outdoors onto the nature center grounds to try their hand at throwing spears.  The “warm up” for the spear throwing will involve targets such as bison and mammoths.  After the audience gets familiar with the technique involved with spear throwing, they will move onto pumpkin hunting.

This presentation will provide an interesting look at archaeology … as well as some October holiday fun.  Call the Prairie Heritage Center – 712-295-7200 for more information.
