During this time of year, remember to keep pumpkins inside as they can be a food attractant for bears.

“When living in bear country, never leave a pumpkin outside overnight or while you’re away. Pumpkins left outside are an unnatural food source, and can be a factor in habituation for bears and other animals, ” said the National Park Service.

Eco tip: Once the pumpkin is ready for disposal, skip the trash and find a way to compost it. If you don’t have your own compost, check with the local dump or recycling center to see if they take pumpkins.
