Crow’s Nest: Fall Color Alert

October 20, 2016

By Daniel Barringer, Preserve Manager


It’s alway difficult to predict exactly when “peak” fall color will occur, but things are looking pretty nice right now. Red maples, sugar maples, sassafras and poison ivy look spectacular right now. Oaks will come along a bit later. I would have thought that the extraordinarily dry conditions might affect color—and insofar as some trees have died it has—but there is still a lot of color out there.

This weekend should be a great time to get out and see nature in autumn’s glory.
