Fall Honeysuckle Roundup
& After-Work Stress Reliever

Monday, September 25 | 6 p.m. till dark | HVL Campground Loop

Blue sky and clear water at Paradise Lake at Hidden Valley Lake, Indiana

Please come help us cut honeysuckle. Enjoy nature, get some exercise, and help the HVL Natural Resource Volunteers continue our progress cutting down invasive honeysuckle. This really makes a difference in restoring the health of our woodlands and in minimizing future erosion problems. The Campground Loop walking trails are at the rear of the athletic fields area. Come when you can, all help is appreciated!

Everyone is welcome to help out – there are easy tasks and/or chances to use your chainsaw. Dress code is sturdy shoes/boots, protective gloves, long pants, long sleeves and bug spray. Optional: bring loppers and/or chain saws. Water and treats provided.

Bonus: the fall migration of warblers is in progress. Nick will point out birds you seldom see. 

Can’t make it next Monday? We will be planting native trees and shrubs in early October and could use some help refilling holes and putting up deer fencing. So, reserve some time to get out and enjoy the fall weather.

Linda Hartmann, HVL Natural Resources Coordinator

Haunted Hayride

Saturday, October 14 | 5 p.m., non-scary rides | 7:30 p.m., scary rides | HVL Sports Complex | $3 (cash only)

It’s hard to believe summer is on the way out and fall is on the way in! Time for bonfires, pumpkin spice everything, and the 11th Annual HVL Haunted Hayride!

Non-profit child-related vendors (e.g., girl scouts, dance teams, football teams) will be on hand selling food, drinks and other goodies. To entertain folks waiting to ride, our outdoor movie screen will be showing kid-friendly Halloween shows and movies throughout the night.

This is the Children’s Activities Committee’s biggest event of the year, funding other activities throughout the year. About 1200 people from around the tri-state attend! Without all the volunteers that make this happen, we would not have such a successful event.

We hope you can join us!

All funds raised enable the Garden Club to beautify our community with plants, flowers, benches, etc. See examples of our 2017 plantings.

Mark your calendars now. Join us for a grand time!

Disaster & Preparedness

Create Your Emergency Plan

Preview of Episode 3 – Disaster and Preparedness: It’s Not Rocket Science

You never know when disaster will strike next, even here in Hidden Valley — fire, tornado, hazardous chemical spill, etc. Protect yourself and your family by learning about the risks now, before a disaster happens. Find out what you need to do to create an emergency plan. It’s easier than you might think.

  1. What should be included in your Emergency Plan? — A planning guide for preparing an Emergency Kit is available at
  2. Where will you meet if you must evacuate your home? — Family members may be at school, at work, outdoors, etc. when a disaster strikes.
  3. Where is the Emergency Supply Kit and what is in it?  — Your kit should cover basic needs for 72 hours: food, water, important documents, and more. It should be portable in case evacuation is required (a backpack is a good solution.)
  4. Share your Emergency Plan with all members of your family.
