(PROPHETSTOWN) - Prophetstown State Park invites you to create your one-of-a-kind Scarecrow for the 9th Annual Trail of Scarecrows, Oct. 1--Nov. 4.

Support your local community, highlight an organization, promote special events and more to thousands of visitors this fall.


Scarecrows will be featured along Prophetstown's paved accessible trail for easy hiking, biking, and strolling. Promote recycling and upcycling by repurposing used items and materials to create fun (and funky!) art for this special event. It's free to participate and there are no registration fees.

The public will have the chance to vote for their favorite Scarecrows by making donations to the Interpretive Services fund for Education, Arts, Culture and History Programs at Prophetstown State Park. By donating one dollar, park guests can cast 100 votes for their favorite Scarecrow. Prizes are awarded for the most votes so spread the word to vote for your Scarecrow!

If you are unable to sponsor a Scarecrow, please consider donating merchandise or gift certificates for contest prizes or gifting a monetary contribution for Interpretive Services programs.

Check out last year's Trail of Scarecrows picture album at for fun and creative ideas.

To enter your Scarecrow and receive registration materials, email Jenna Parks, Interpretive Naturalist, by Sept. 24.
