On August 4, I posted this question on our Friends of the Pumpkinvine Facebook page:  “What improvements would you like to see to the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail?”  By Aug. 28, there were 28 comments. Here’s a summary. Note that in many cases a comment mentioned several ideas, so when someone “liked” that comment, it isn’t clear which idea they are referring to. In other words, the “Liked” column isn’t very accurate.
