The late autumn shades of oak leaves provide welcome color to a changing landscape.  Long after maple trees are bare, oaks still celebrate the glory of fall. More subdued than the fiery blaze of October’s foliage, oak leaves come in a range of colors.  From deep red to purple, from gold to brown, these warm earth tones contrast with the green pines, stone walls and gray boulders dotting the landscape.  As an added bonus, beeches and oaks often keep their leaves during the cold months, offering our winter landscape a touch of bronze and brown.

Click here to download our latest scavenger hunt. Search for clues about what is happening in the natural world in late autumn as animals prepare for winter. Will you find signs that animals have dined on pine cones and acorns? A leaf that an insect has nibbled? A place for an animal to hide? Enjoy a family walk on our trails or in your neighborhood as you hone your nature detective skills. Download and go and most importantly, have fun being outside together!
