Giant Leaf Pit
Part of a ton of kid-friendly activities as this year’s event… Jump into Fondy FallToberfest with our Giant Leaf Pit: Fun for Everyone!

*Call to community* to bring “clean” leaves to Oven Island to create the biggest leaf pile you’ll ever come across.

We encourage you to help contribute to the giant leaf pit by bringing your clean, dry leaves to Oven Island at Lakeside Park Thursday, October 19th (1 – 5pm) and Friday, October 20th (9am – 5pm).

We’ll have volunteers checking these leaves and adding them to the pile. Once the event is over, we will be collecting these leaves so they don’t end up in storm drains or dumped in our waterways. They will be repurposed and used for mulch around Lakeside Park and other parks in Fond du Lac.
