Event details

Walk the trails of Thorn Creek Woods amidst trees of all species as they transition from their summer green to shades of red, yellow, orange, gold, russet and even purple — all the colors of autumn. Discover not only why leaves change in the fall, but why different trees turn different colors. Bring home a ghost leaf craft for Halloween!

This program is sponsored by the Thorn Creek Audubon Society.
