Fall On The Farm

The Manitowish Waters Chamber of Commerce revamped Cran-a-rama for 2022 and titled it “Fall on the Farm in Manitowish Waters – a blend of the traditional celebration of cranberries with new autumnal, harvest, and farm features.” The Manitowish Waters Lakes Association, North Lakeland Discovery Center, and the Vilas County Lakes and Rivers Association had booths at the event to provide information regarding the preservation of our water and ecosystem.

Games at Fall on the Farm – Guess How Many Acorns?
Did you stop by our booths to play our game, guess how many acorns? This fun game was to help folks understand the importance of Oak trees in our ecosystem. Did you know Oaks support more life forms than any other native North American tree?

There were 758 acorns! The winner, 10-year-old Jack Brooks, with a guess of 739 acorns, will be receiving a $50 gift certificate to Aberdeen Restaurant and a hardcover copy of The Nature of Oaks: The Rich Ecology of Our Most Essential Native Trees, written by Douglas W. Tallamy. Prizes were donated by the Manitowish Waters Lakes Association and the North Lakeland Discovery Center.
