Don't trash your Halloween pumpkin - smash it!
Bring your Halloween pumpkins to the Forest Preserve District of Will County's Plum Creek Nature Center in Crete Township and smash them to smithereens instead of sending them to the local landfill this year. The "Pumpkin Smash" program will be held from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, Nov. 3, at the nature center. Get all the details at bit.ly/willcopumpkin.
