Hike with an Arboretum ecologist and take in the changing colors of the Arboretum’s trees. This seasonal stroll will give you the chance to view fall colors and learn what seasonal changes trees go through each year. You’ll get a chance to hear about the following:
- Why leaves change color and drop
- What discoveries scientists are making about these changes
- Why some seasons have great fall color and others don’t
- What the timing of fall color changes can tell us about the bigger picture of our climate and local environment
This program meets on-site at the Arboretum.
