Fall Color Report: November 12, 2021

Trees at The Morton Arboretum are still cloaked in color as they prepare for winter, with many shades of gold woven through with highlights of wine-red and burgundy.

Among the best places to enjoy the trees before their color wanes are the Maple Collection (parking lots 7 and 14); the East Woods (parking lots 8 to 16), including trails leading from the Big Rock Visitor Station (Parking Lot 13); the Asian tree collections (parking lots 16 through 18); the area of the Thornhill Education Center with its gardens (Parking Lot 21); and the Schulenberg Prairie and nearby oak savanna (Parking Lot 25). The color is in its last few weeks, so be sure to visit soon.
