Pumpkin-Toss-FlyerBear River Land Conservancy believes a sense of community is vitally important now more than ever. For this reason, we are helping to sponsor the 5th annual Pumpkin Toss, a competition for USU engineering students and local “pumpkin-chuckin” enthusiasts alike. On November 7, 2015, at 11:00 am at Elk Ridge Park, 2500 North 1100 East in North Logan, Utah, teams will bring their trebuchets (medieval catapults) to rain gourds from the sky. The teams will be competing for both accuracy and distance, and pumpkins filled with candy will be thrown for the kids. This event is free to the public, and all-ages are invited.

Some of these pumpkins are leftovers from the Pumpkin Walk, held annually for over 30 years. This event is hosted by the city of North Logan, and officiated by Utah State University’s chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

Bear River Land Conservancy is a charitable nonprofit organization that was formed in 2011 in order to protect private lands which provide public benefits in Northern Utah. These lands protect habitat, farms, open space, recreational opportunities, and our local history. Bear River Land Conservancy is driven by a belief that future generations will greatly value the lands set aside for these important reasons.
