We had a great community turnout for our Hootin’ Howlin’ Halloween event. Toddlers to grandparents came dressed in costume, and visited stations throughout the Draper Natural History Museum. They interacted with Suli the Turkey Vulture and Teasdale the Great Horned Owl. They listened to stories with George in the Naturalist Cabin, and played with Shadow Puppets in the Seasons of Discovery. But I believe one of the most enjoyable parts of the day was looking at the great creations that the Buffalo Bill Center of the West staff carved out of pumpkins! This year we had 9 entries, and the visitors were asked to vote for their favorite. The carver of the winning pumpkin wins breakfast for his/her department from Rocky Mountain Mojoe’s- yummy!
So… this year’s winner was (drum roll, please)… Rachel Lee’s “Perla,” followed closely by Rachel Lee’s “Jack”! Yes, Rachel Lee of our Development Department is quite an artist.
Thanks to all who voted, and participated in our event. We hope to see you again next year!
